It's so good that recently I did a fun field comparison of the OMD plus 40-150 and the 5D MkIII with 70-300L. Apologies if some of you have seen this already via another thread, but the results were interesting:

Lindsay, I very much appreciate your contribution to this discussion. Your example images are fantastic and verify what has been shown in the charts. I feel vindicated.

In terms of resolution, the little 40-150 on a body like the EM5 with 16 mp sensor holds its own very well against any company for regular daylight photos. What it might lack in color, vignetting and contrast (which is not much if any) are easily adjusted in Lightroom.

What it cannot do of course is compete in shallow DOF or low-light against f2.8 monsters on FF high-ISO bodies. But I can live with that.
