No, with Pentax Q you run into the empty resolution territory right away.

OK, then the Nikon 1 V2 is best. I think you understand the point I'm making, you just don't want to address it.  If the Oly is better than the Sony, the Nikon 1 would be better than the Oly 'cause it's close focus of .27x would fill more of the sensor.

That they do, but usually smaller sensors update earlier.

So any purported advantage is temporary. Eventually both will hit your 'empty resolution' limit and will then be equal.  So  magnification relative to sensor size becomes useless.

The way I see it, these are two lenses comparable in their performance and size.

Broadly comparable, I agree.  But some wanted to make a big deal over the differences in close focus and FOV while ignoring other differences.
