Very helpful would be comparison to competition like the Panasonic 14-140 (which I have and have used a lot) and Sony RX10 iv.

Example: Would it be worth upgrading from 14-140 to 12-200 just for the long end and better sharpness.

IMHO the 12mm wide end is of greater value than the 200mm long end compared to 14-140, but that may be more a measure of what I want in a "do-all" lens. I avoid 14mm standard zooms.

I am not interested in this lens but I agree that 12mm is of more value to me than a poor 200mm. If I was going down the long zoom range I would go for the 12-100mm F/4 it actually is a super zoom for m43 users as in super performer The only real compromise with that lens is the F/4 which would not be as good for low light action shooting as the F/2.8 zooms
