All of the 4/3 lenses are larger and heavier than their M4/3 counterparts, and some are significantly larger and heavier. Some cost twice as much and weigh three times more.

The size difference is fairly obvious.

But what isn’t so obvious is the huge difference in cost and weight.

If you had all 7 of these 4/3 lenses they would have cost you $10,399, and they would weigh 4,690 grams, or 10.3 pounds, including the necessary adapters.

If you had all 7 M4/3 lenses they would cost you $6,032, and weigh 1,597 grams, or 3.5 pounds.

Some (not so small) part of the reasons for this is that for the pair on the right side of the pictures, the 4/3 lenses are F/2.0 while the m4/3 are F/2.8, but we get the picture...
