I generally agree with your post, especially the first part,

Always a good beginning.

although I wouldn't say m43 lenses are twice as good as FF lenses

I was only saying they are about twice as good in terms of lp/mm on the sensor. On a per-image basis, or at the same display size, they are about as good when the sensor resolution (again on a per-image basis) is held constant.

as until someone comes out with a 64MP FF sensor we will have no idea how good some of the FF lenses are. (Although the ones with spectacular MFT curves will presumably do pretty well if that ever happens.)

I don't think a 64 MP FF sensor versus a 16 MP MFT sensor is a very interesting comparison. Why would it be?

A more interesting comparison in my view is that of MFT lenses on a 16 MP MFT sensor versus FF lenses on a 16 MP FF sensor, as is possible by means of the DxO results for the Nikon D4 and Df (preferably relying on acutance rather than P-MPix).

Plus in any case you can only buy what is available, and other than good telephotos and some specialised lenses m43 does pretty well.
