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

Re: I thought this was about lenses?

It is about the lenses. You should go out with just the two lenses (no cameras) and then post images that you take so we can see the real differences.

The pictures show a lot of things, mostly about sensor advancement imo. The Olympus pictures probably don't need that much sharpening, but even without being oversharp, there is simply a lot more detail to see and the DR is fantastic. The Canon pictures, so many colors and shades blow out and morph into other colors because of limited DR. Detail also suffers as a result. One thing affects another.

What if the hokey pokey really is what it's all about?
