Is this just another case of "mine is bigger than yours" or is there some validity.  These lenses are built to function best with the bodies made by the same manufacturer.  Keep that in mind when you do your non-scientific testing.  I doubt that anyone would be able to tell which lens was used while viewing a print.

In my work, having the sharpest lens can be important. If the Panasonic were better, I can return the Olympus and save a lot of money. On the other hand, if the Olympus were sharper, I would keep it and sell the Panasonic, albeit at a loss.

You mention an interesting point about manufacturers. However, I have had great results with other Panasonic lenses (and I have most of them).
