The equivalence war is lost...

Just reading yet another another review of the E-M5, and noticed the following, casual statement...

"As with every quality camera it’s a shame to not use quality glass. The lenses used are absolutely critical. And that’s one of the OM-D E-M5′s strong points: you have the 12mm F2, the cheaper but not less beautiful 45mm F1.8 and the high-grade 75mm F1.8 portrait lens.

In full-frame terms that’s a 24mm, a 90mm and a 150mm of best build quality and nice size. Compare them to Sony Alpha’s NEX system…"

Looks like the last 5+ years of debate (on dpreview forums) over equivalence was for nothing, people just don't seem to care in the real world.

As an enthusiast photographer, I have to say that's unsurprising - it's never had relevance to my shooting... I just learned the characteristics of what I used, and worked with it.

Kind Regards
