Thats idotic to compare features that don't interest you

Sorry but thats one of the dumbest arguments I've seen a while

Your testing two lens that provide a similar range, feature set, and IQ and you test them under the context of how you'll use them.

If your only shooting landscapes who cares about high ISO ?

If I work from a tripod exclusively why would I care about shooting at 1600 ??

Why not test the video mode of the m4/3 camera then that the 5D can't do ?

You test like features that interest you for like features that interest you. If your reason for owning a 100-400 is for taking pictures at the zoo on sunny days (main thing I used to do with mine) then its perfectly valid to test the 45-200 as a much lower cost/ lighter weight alternative for that type of purpose.
