A couple of slow 5.6 zooms on M43 are really 3 stops off an f4 on FF, but if you would rather have them, go ahead

The first one is actually a constant f/2.8 zoom, an FF equivalent of f/5.6. A stop off f/4, but not 3 stops. In fact, probably closer to 2/3 of a stop for the sensor of A7 seems to be less efficient than Olympus' OM series, significant but not night and day difference.
