Olympus 15mm f/8 (bodycap lens) versus compact camera?

Suppose you are going "birding" with an E-M5/PL5/PM2 with nothing but a super-telephoto lens mounted on-camera, and you'd like to take a few general shots of the scenery, and you have a spare pocket where you can bring EITHER a 15mm f/8 bodycap lens, OR a Canon S100/S110 compact camera (24mm f/2.0, 1/1.7" sensor). If IQ is your most important criteria for those side scenery shots, which one would you bring in the pocket?
