A 1 stop noise disadvantage is not life threatening, while people keep banging on this f4 business, the truth is the f2 zoom would be side by side an f2.8 zoom.

A bright lens is considered f1.4 in FF. An F4 equivalent lens is simply not bright enough. There are no really bright lenses in 4/3rds.

Yet the challenge here for the f1.4 FF lens is DoF. While you can be creative with very shallow DoF for many purposes of documentation it is simply too shallow.

Sometimes shutter speed and noise is more important than framing.

DR is important, colour accuracy is important, noise performance is important (not all to the same people)... But the industry generally feels that product work must be done with the most expensive, high MP kit... But in all seriousness it shouldn't

As a pro, you know that what 'should be' and what 'is' are two different things.

As a pro, one must respond to what 'is'.
