Those are not m43 lenses!   So you have totally ignored my comparison using m43 lenses and made your own one with non m43 lenses?

And an f2.8 lens is an f2.8 lens in terms of exposure. As regards DOF F2.0 or F2.8 on m43 does not equal f5.6 on APS-C.   I use both a m43 camera and an APS-C dslr - the main advantage of the former is the smaller size and weight while for some situations a dslr is a better choice - hence I have both. If I thought m43 did everything I wanted I would only use m43, but it doesn't - so I don't. ¬†Depth of field difference between APS-C and m43 is fairly small and image quality is also fairly similar. If narrower depth of field is required and budget allows then that is what full frame is for. I don't see either m43 or APS-C as 'better' - both have their disadvantages and advantages.
