Re: Size, telephoto, not much better IQ...

Yes, it has quite a bit better IQ as ISO goes up, look at DXO.

Also Canon has an enormous range of staggeringly sharp tele lenses, m43 has none of real quality above 100mm (alas...). Fingers crossed we'll get some one day, but a 500 f4 equivalent seems a long way away...

Not really.

Canon 500mm f/4 II USM - $10,400

14.48 x 38.45 cm - 3.19 Kg.


Olympus 90-250mm f/2.8 ED Zuiko - $6,000

12.47 x 27.69 cm - 3.69 Kg

I don't own any of these, but have a feeling that a good photographer can get state-of-the-art super telephotos with either one.
