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

It's the same story of MFT vs the big boys we've seen repeatedly. The smaller lenses on smaller sensors can in fact out-resolve the monster lenses on larger sensors.

Nothing new here.

True sometimes, depending on how you compare them. But when the bigger sensors have more megapixels they have the resolution advantage, especially for center resolution. There is no way a m43 camera is going to beat a Nikon D800e with a good lens,

It can not beat an entry level D3200 with half price lens on it, what does D800e got to do with any of this?

I fully agree with your point of view.

The D800e refers to earlier discussion in this thread; otherwise the m43 fanboys are going to compare lens performance on highest MP m43 bodies with lens performance on lowest MP FF bodies and claim that m43 lenses (or sensors) are better ...
