I found it to be at F5.6 on both 50mm F2 and new 60mm.

I spent hours comparing the 60 with the older 50mm F2 and at examining images a 100% they really were as close to identical.  Both lenses were clearly (IMO) at their best at F5.6.  I thought overall when comparing at F4, 5.6, 8 and 11 that the 60mm had slightly better edges.  All was done on the E-M5.

I went crazy and looked at 300% (crazy stupid thing to do) and it looked like the older 50mm might be a bit sharper than the 60mm above F5.6  But even if true no one would ever see it unless they  were doing major pixel peeping.
