Note that the back-cap of the Panasonic is larger (deeper) here than the one on the Oly. It magnifies the real size difference.

My takeaway is:

1) Lenses really, really close in terms of IQ, including sharpness in the center and corners, CA, and distortion.

2) The extra speed of the Panny is real, but for most shots isn't really very significant.

3) The first picture describes the biggest difference to me:

i.e., the Panasonic is a whole lot bigger. Add the fact that the Panasonic lens hood is not reversible, and cannot be stored on the lens, it makes the Olympus a much smaller lens.

So for me, someone who really values the small size of the m43 format, it's a no-brainer.

As usual, others will disagree, which is why it's great we have CHOICES!
