To take but one example, here is how the best MFT normal lens (in terms of MTF values only, and according to LensRentals) mounted on an E-M5 compares to the best FF normal lens (by the same token) mounted on a Leica M9. The figures are lp/ih (line pairs per image height) for center/average.

Panasonic 20/1.7 on an E-M5 (16 MP)

But everyone knows the Panasonic 25/1.4 is a much better lens. Just read the posts on this forum

1.7 870/735

2.8 1050/875

4.0 1075/880

Leica Summilux 50/1.4 on an M9 (18 MP, no AA filter)

1.4 600/530

2.0 950/740

2.8 1025/860

4.0 1110/980
