Maybe it is what you had on hand. FYI, The Panasonic would be a better lens to compare since it is also only 24-70mm and does not have the optics for a close up lens as the Sony doesn't either. You will find the Panasonic is smaller than the Olympus, but maybe that was not your point (since you left the hood one the Olympus).

As for understanding exposure think of lens apertures like this. A fat lady and a thin lady are laying on the beach. Who will get sun burnt faster? Answer: both will burn/tan the same despite the fat lady having 4x the skin area.

... in a technical discussion is a sign of immaturity.

Since you don't understand the technical language and insists on the analogies, here is one for you. If you have two pans under the rain and one has 4 times larger surface (representing sensors), which one will have the deepest water level?   It will be the same level for both.

I've seen that analogy too.  Weather forcasters use it all the time and will tell you the size of the pan doesn't matter for measuring the amount of rain one is getting.
