When it comes to the aperture range in the middle of the 14-42mm focal range, the older Lumix G 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 appears to be the winner.

It is not. For example, it is f/4.6 at 25mm, while Oly 14-42 II is f/4.4.

Who cares and who cares about a .2 difference on kit lenses. That's like saying the Oly primes suck because they can't seem to make a lens faster then 1.8 for some reason.
