May Satan forever guide you.

Disagree with this bit.

The Sigma 18-35 1.8 zoom for instance.

M4/3 lenses are very nice (and small) but IQ is a combination of lens and camera.

The Sigma 1.8 zoom scores very nicely on apsc cameras ...as nice as m4/3 lenses on m4/3 cameras.

I would think then if you tested the Sigma on a m4/3 camera it would score higher still (if  testing the lens like SLRgear) and of course if testing the lens/ sensor combination (like DXO), M4/3 does not score as high.

Between the Em1 and Fuji, it would come down to which I liked the best.

I am very happy with my GX7 (and A7) though.
