It's the only one of the three I don't own - but that's not coincidence.  I don't think it has terribly good IQ, unsurprisingly, for the money.
The chap below saying he takes his dSLR when he needs high quality rather makes the point.  The OM-D needs no dSLR to back it up, paired with the best lenses. 
The Olympus bodies correct distortion just like the Panasonic ones.

It looks like the lens that best fits my needs is the Olympus 9~18mm rather than the 2 I actually asked about!

Thanks again.

Really? That's a very eccentric choice from my PoV.

Why? It's small enough to be part of a multi lens kit, it's wider than the 12mm and more versatile, it takes filters, and I've read reviews that put it on a par with the Panasonic 7~14 when used on Olympus camera (the Panny has an advantage on Panasonic cameras that won't apply on Oly bodies, i.e distortion correction). Unlike the 2 lenses I was considering originally it ticks all the boxes with fewer compromises.
