Olympus 12-40 easily beats the Canon 17-55 at f/2.8 (but not when stopped down).

Regarding the apples and oranges...

(not pears obviously)

Yes the circumstances were different. That is why I did not want to draw any conclusion on the shots that were stopped down.

But the differences at f/2.8 are so big that despite the differences in circumstances the 12-40 is a very clear winner here.
