Also, there is Pana 14-140 (better optically) and new Tamron 14-150.

This one made me laugh out loud.  Olympus has fantastic primes, I will completely agree with you there, but their zooms are the worst of all the mirrorless (except for the Pentax Q) - the 14-150 being about the worst they've made.  Such a shame too, their 4/3rd zooms are great, but their M4/3rds (except the 9-18) are average at best.

Also, why show only the wide end? All lenses produce decent to good IQ at the wide end.  And the E18-200 LE isn't as sharp as the original SEL18-200, which I own.

Here's a better test:  First, wide...

and now at the long end...

And my copy (and newer versions) of the 18-200 are even sharper than what is shown above.  No manufacturer has an all-in-one as good as the original Sony 18-200.  I do agree that the Pany is better than the Olympus, but Olympus doesn't correct for distortion, CAs, and vignetting when using Panasonic lenses.  That's a shame, because a OMD + 14-140 would be a good combo otherwise.
