Olympus is one stop dimmer, it's equivalent to 24-80mm f/5.6 on FF. And the weight and price, all other things being equal, is growing as f^2 to f^3. So, by that metrics, Olympus is way too heavy and too overpriced.

Better optics for the sensor though. Fewer flaws and fewer people complaining about what they're paying for. Not quite the same story with those FE zooms so far. I'm still curious to see what happens when you attach that F4 zoom lens on a regular APS-C body, the results will be probably even worse if it follows the same pattern as the FE primes.

I have not compare the image yet. But im guessing olympus one should be a better optic then sony zeiss as review arent that fantastic. i am surprised as well with the size of the FE lens But then olympus is f2.8 and longer at the end and it come with a manuel focusing system.

I bet 24-70 is better. Larger sensor — easier to design.
