I go sometimes to Micro Four Thirds official site.

Today I was admiring the lenses pages.

I love lenses, It was my first fascination when I was a kid, to look trough the lenses from my father cameras. Then I started to do Photography and until now is my main fascination, I like very much cameras but lenses have something magic, and they are a better investment.

My favourite online toy is the Matching Simulation:

(well, not really, there are other sites that I like more; but I think it is a very good resource for checking out the possible look of any FT or µFT camera, coupled with any FT or µFT lens (and a number of specialties and legacy lenses etc).

The fact that you can mount lenses on cameras make it much easier to guess at their respective sizes, much better than just a chart. This includes also the pretty big Olympus SHG lenses.

Just recently, I used it to look how different in size the 25mm and 17.5mm Voigtlander Nokton are, as compared to each other and to the Olympus 12-50 lens, all of that mounted on E-M5.
