Telezooms - Which Is The Sharpest?

I have a GX7, 12-35/2.8, 75/1.8 and am looking for a relatively compact telezoom that will get me to at least 150mm and doesn't break the bank.

From Panasonic there are:

45-150/4-5.6, 45-175/4-5.6, 45-200/4-5.6, and 100-300/4-5.6

From Olympus there are:

40-150/4-5.6R or the 75-300/4.8-8.7II

which of these has the best sharpness and contrast near 150mm?  OIS is nice, but not necessary.

Thanks -
