The FL-36 zooms to 85mm (135) and the Metz zooms to 105mm. Really not much of an advantage here.

Still, if you shoot at 105mm, using an fl36, you loose about 1/3rd of the light, because it gets outside FOV. (  (85/105)^2)

And we are talking equivalent FL-s, 85mm on m4/3 is 42.5mm, even in case of the 1.8/45 the Metz have a slight edge.
