Re: In my experience...

1. 75/1.8

2. 60 macro, 25/1.8

3. 45/1.8, 12/2

4. 17/1.8

5. 17/2.8

I don't own the 12-40, but have a copy of the 12-60 which is apparently quite similar in terms of sharpness. I would place it in group 3.

One thing to note: sharpness is not the most important attribute of a lens. Micro contrast is in my opinion more meaningful to the life-like rendering of a scene. In this respect the 12/2 does very well, followed by the 25/1.8 and the 17/1.8.
