Thanks. That helps.

I agree with your conclusions. Viewed at 100% the Sony images look definitely sharper.

I will leave it to others to argue whether this is typical performance or yours was a bad copy. Some of the leaves below the window in Oly 1 have a doubled margin suggesting that perhaps shutter shock was a factor. Had not heard of such an issue with the E-P5.

Based on the OP's photos, the Sony RX100 ones are clearly sharper! This is revealing. I don't think the E-P5's sensor is worse than the Sony's, being twice as big. So, it would seem the culprit is the 17mm f/1.8.  It can't even compete with a small and slow zoom of a tiny camera!

IMHO, it appears if camera shake or something weird was going on. I don't think its necessarily the lens.  The edges of the Olympus are sharper to me, even if the center of the sony's is sharper.
