Actually the 14-140mm is the sharpest lens. At 14mm it has the highest sharpness on center of any m4/3s lens. It also is sharper across almost the entire frame at 25mm than the 50mm is.

The 50mm is a terrible lens for sharpness wide open. Here is the dpreview tests results as compared to the 14-140mm.

Ohhh, come on now. Apples with Apples. Compare the 2 lenses via your link at 50mm and F5.6, the Olympus is markedly sharper than the Panasonic. The difference with both "wide open" is minor at 50mm.

Not knocking the 14-140, it's a wonderful lens. But why compare a macro at 50mm to a super zoom at 14mm? And by the way, the corners at 14mm aren't anything to celebrate!,32&fullscreen=true&av=4.333,3.667&fl=25,50&vis=VisualiserSharpnessMTF,VisualiserSharpnessMTF&stack=horizontal&&config=LensReviewConfiguration.xml%3F1

According to here

The four thirds 50mm f2 has been "dethroned". The new mft macro takes over the four thirds in sharpness. Quite amazing.
