I guess the real question is - what's the point of the comparison in the posts I replied to ? What does Emacs23 mean by "24-70 is better" ?

It collects ~twice the total light.  Some of this extra is lost by the sensor, but the it still factors into lens complexity & precision.

If it's that it can outresolve the m43 kit, then I'd reply that I sure as heck hope so !!!

We won't know this until there is a 24MP MFT sensor to test the 12-40mm resolution.  Odds are they will be pretty close for similar pixel counts.
