Actually, a clear majority who have chipped-in over the years on this comparison favor the 14-140. That is not to say that the Oly is bad, nor to forget that cop-to-copy variation may factor in. YMMV

My experience shows the opposite, with the Oly 14-150ii being a tad sharper than Panasonic's 14-140, especially at the long end.

But what makes me prefer olympus is the overall build quality and feeling of the lens. Although a premium kit and not a professional grade zoom lens, it well built, tight and not having an internal IS system makes it tinier than Panasonic, whilst a bit longer.

I think iot's a matter of preferences.

Same applies for the Oly 12-40 pro vs PL 12-60, I own both and prefer the build quality of the olympus pro...
