How good are Zuiko lenses?

This may be of interest; there has been some discussion on our sibling site, Four Thirds User, concerning the merits of the Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8. Granted, this is a lens with a constant aperture throughout the zoom range, but it's quite an inexpensive lens.

So I posted some test shots that are quite revealing compared to a ZD 12-60:
