I don't have comparative piccies for the sharpness as I only own the oly, but check out these:

Note the sigma test was done on a Nikon - so even worse on a Oly - note their opinion of the relative merits of the sigma vs the oly - one that most folks seem to agree with. The vignetting on the sigma also seems to be noticeable too.

Check out http://fourthirds-user.com/2008/11/z...omparisons.php - this gives you an idea of how 1mm difference in a wide angle lens is significant.
