Guess I am not "politically correct"...

100% crop of m4/3 16 MP = 100% crop of m4/3 16 MP.

Go shoot with an old 6 MP DSLR and it will blow you away with how sharp it is at 100% crop.

Open your eyes and look at the rest of the image at the same magnification.


So you are saying if I change my jpeg setting to say to Middle setting I.E. 3200 X 2400 instead of the Large 4608 X 3456 that I can shoot the same landscape shot and it will look much better at 100%?

No, that is not what I said.

You can shoot full size and resize so they are similar.  The Sony likely just throws out data to make smaller JPEG, i.e. I wouldn't trust the in-camera resizing algorithms.

What I am saying is use your photo editor of choice to make the crops the same magnification between the two cameras in a way that is not trying to push an agenda.

This will be like 100% crop on Oly and 50% crop on Sony, or 200% crop on Oly and 100% crop on Sony (roughly, don't know that I am saying entirely correct percentages).
