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

If you were referring to Canon 70D + 400L with widelife and sports and asking me to provide proof that this combo is far better than anything from m43 and 100-300, I have absolutely no need to post anything to prove it. If you still need to ask then you deserve to stay uneducated.

Unfortunately the myth that m43 is at least as good or better for wildlife as APS-C or FF DSLR is pervasive on m43 forum; including the suggestion that you need large DOF for nature shots so the 'big whites' are useless anyway ... It's fully based on faith and fanboy pride, not on logic or actual experience.

m43 has its strengths, but wildlife and sports are one of the really weak spots (and especially the intersection of the two when both long focal length, fast focus and high shutter speed are required for best results).
