IMO you should do some testing of your own to find out how each of your lenses performs at different apertures given the kinds of subject matter you photograph. As other folks have pointed out, smaller apertures are useful for increasing DOF. Depending on the photo this may matter more than any slight gain (or even loss) in resolution. With my m43 lenses I always shoot for the DOF I want without worrying about "sharpness." These lenses are plenty sharp in the real world almost regardless of aperture.
