eg: FF user is going for a hike. They decide to take a 24-70f2.8 and a 70-200f2.8.

Their M4/3s using buddy going with them takes a 12-35f2.8, a 24-70f2.8, a 25mm f1.4, a 60mm macro, a 75-300, a fisheye, a flash and their lunch.

Now who's more versatile?

Terrible example. The FF lenses are 2 full stops ahead of the m4/3 lenses in equivalent aperture.

Only if you are composing the image the same way.

Correct my if I am wrong but a f1.4 lens still lets the same amount of light in regardless of the sensor size.

A MFT shooter could get the same amount of subject isolation and blur but they'd have to be shooting for the same spot basically shooting 2x tighter.

It's only when you compose the image the same way that the DOF becomes equivalent to f2.8.

If you remove the need for subject isolation and short DOF the the aperture advantage of FF goes away.
