According to DXO:

1. Olympus 75mm 1.8 is top

2. Then equal second is the pan leica 25mm and panasonic 20mm

3. olympus 12mm f2, 60mm macro, sigma 60mm f2.8 and panasonic 35-100 f2.8 zoom

4. olympus 45mm 1.8, oly 12-40 f2.8, pan 12-35 f2.8, pan 7-14 f4

These were all tested on the EM1,

The new pan leica 42.5 f1.2 and 15mm f1.7 have also been tested but not on the EM1. They were tested on the EM5.

The 42.5 is sharper than the olympus 75mm 13mpx over 12mpx.

The 15mm has the same sharpness as the pan leica 25 and panasonic 20mm.

These are just sharpness results.

Edit: sorry just read your title again and you wanted just Oly lenses. Not sure why but I suppose you can filter out the other lenses mentioned.

From what I’ve seen, the 12-40mm wipes the floor with the 12mm prime with regards to edge sharpness.

Uh, the prime "wipes the floor" with the zoom at f/2 even though the edges are noticeably soft.  Stopped down they sharpen up very nicely.
