So the OP's friend was simply correct,
that there is no (or seldom) inherent image-quality advantage of a
small sensor. This is not to discount the advantages of less bulk
and less money from cropped sensors, but the advantage is not image
quality.

Please allow me to paste from the OP:

According to him, when I say my 50-200 is equivalent to 100-400, it only means > the field of view is equivalent to his FF 100-400 but the focal length is still 50-> 200mm, therefore, all the rhetoric about 4/3 size advantage is bs.

The OP wasn't about image quality. It was all about size advantage. Oly has a size advantage with long lenses.

As to IQ, in good light there is little difference between systems, and the differences that most would consider would be color, contrast, sharpness and other factors more lens dependent than sensor dependent.
