The 35mm FE lens is the same size as the Olympus 17mm.

I find this amusing. People found one lens that is smaller than an Olympus lens, but obviously most Micro 4/3 lenses are smaller and many significantly smaller.

Making decisions based on cherrypicking is indeed curious.

Once again, remember that the A7 competes against the E-M1 with the f/2.8 zoom, and not the E-PM2 with the kit lens or a G5 with kit lens on sale for $350 to $400. And btw, I consider the G5 kit a good deal for $350, even though it's not a fun combo to use, but it's clearly not in the same league as the Sony A7.

The A7 competes with E-PM2 on size, cost, EVF quality and lens availability and wins in none of the categories.

The E-M1 competes with full-featured products.
