Perhaps there is another 25mm f/1.4 besides the Panasonic lens, but the price of that 50/2.8 full frame equivalent is considerably more (~$200) than either Nikon or Canon's 50/1.4s.

What about the price of the cameras you mount those lenses on?

If size is also an issue, you can still retain over a stop advantage with full frame by buying an ultra cheap, small, and sharp 50mm f/1.8 from either brand.

If you always shoot so close up that the depth of field at f/1.4 on full frame is too shallow, then the cheapest option would be a Nikon APS-C DSLR with the $200 35mm f/1.8 (52.5mm f/2.7 equivalent).

F/1.4 on FF is too shallow for most types of photography regardless of how far away you are focusing. MFT as a complete system with lens options blows out Canikon APSC pretty badly.

Micro four thirds lenses are toys compared to The Nikon or Canon lens system. MFT has nothing to compare with the best Nikon and Canon telephotos.

f8 and be there

The best Canikon telephotos are full frame lenses and cost thousands of dollars, or did your reading comprehension skills betray you?

Sorry your MFT lenses don't compare. You can use any of the FF Nikon telephoto lenses on an APS-C with great results. Those are all part of the FF or APS-C lens system for Nikon. In comparison your MFT lenses are toys for tots.

What part of $6,000-10,000 or 6-10 lbs don't you understand? Or are you just conceding those points without bothering to admit it?
