Ricoh GR vs m43 lens comparison for Anders W

Anders, you keep criticizing me for saying that the Ricoh GR blows away the quality of m43 lenses. So I will shoot any comparison you'd like and upload the photos here.

I own the following lenses, so pick one for the comparison;

m.Zuiko 14-42mm IIR
m.Zuiko 12-50mm (this lens sucks really bad)
m.Zuiko 9-18mm

Zuiko 14-54mm (this is probably the sharpest lens at 14mm that I own)

Zukio 11-22mm (this is probably the second-sharpest lens at 14mm that I own)

Lumix 14mm (this lens sucks really bad)
Lumix G Vario 14-42mm, good copy
Lumix G Vario 14-42mm, mediocre copy
Lumix G X Vario PZ 14-42mm "pancake" (photo would probably have blur from shutter shock unless I use G5 with e-shutter)

Also, I can compare to 17mm to demonstrate that the Ricoh cropped to match the 17mm fov is just as sharp as uncropped 17mm.

I will use an Olympus E-M5 with IBIS turned on and anti-shock set to 1/8 sec. Or I can also use a Panasonic G5.

You pick the lens, camera the f-stop to use, and anything else you'd like me to do.

Leica X Vario Panasonic Lumix DMC-G5
