I did head to head tripod test against Oly, 18-55 on Fuji and Panny 14-42 pancake on Oly both around 35mm equiv at f4, and after developing Rawls in latest Lightroom, tweaking exposure for exact match and applying optimal sharpening for each, they were neck and neck.  Bear in mind that the Oly is supposed to have a very weak AA filter.  I'm switching to the Fuji for reasons of form factor and handling, not IQ.  Oh, I also uprezzed to 16.5" high at 360 dpi using my usual Photozoom settings and applied some output sharpening which is my usual workflow for printing on a 3880 and again, neck and neck.  Forgot to mention the Fuji had a little less noise at base iso which is where I tested.  Couldn't really assess dynamic range with the scene.  BTW this was an outdoor shot, not a studio test setup.
