Maybe sample variation?

I ordered the black Oly 75-300. I received a silver version by mistake. Tested it and this copy is very sharp at all focal lengths, for both shorter and longer focal distances. So I decided to keep it.

Interesting to note that people who have tried both sometimes found the Olympus to be sharper and others found the Panasonic to be sharper. There must be quite a bit of copy variation and may the differences in cameras contributes as well.
