All things being equal, I think I've eliminated the used PL 12-60 for the time being.

Between the Pan 14-140ii & Oly 14-150ii. Is the absence of 10mm on the Pan's long end made up for by it's faster f/3.6 on the short end when compared to the Oly?

It's mainly a design goal not a specific result. Oly has a straigh 10X focal multiplier whereas Oly went for a 10.7..

The extra 1/3 stop @ 14mm has little, if none, advantage IMHO

Consider that Oly IBIS is very very very good. The M10.2 is a little gem and a joy to use.

If you can, see both lenses and choose the one that you like the most as I really believe none of them really outperforms the other. Also,  copy variation may invalidate any Lab test about sharpness, astigmatism, coma....
