Then consider that the relative size difference between FourThirds and APS-C is considerably less than that between APS-C and 135.

From 24x36 to 15.8x23.6 is about 1.2 stops.
From 15.8x23.6 to 13x17.3 is about 0.73 stops.

Do you really think that calls for an adverb like 'considerably'? How about 'APS-C is slightly closer to Four-Thirds than it is to full frame'?

For people not hung up on insignificant decimals it is roughly midway between FT and FF, roughly a stop from each.
