But ... lenses for larger sensors are not equivalent in sharpness for whatever reason, at equivalent settings. The typical performance is somewhere between the two cases above; and larger systems resolve more (try posting this in the m43 forum).

This is what I figured hence my question regarding MTFs of the various lenses in question.

I guess I am suddenly finding myself in the same situation crop shooters have been in since the release of the 5D and which I have scoffed at for as many years: trying to figure out which system is better sight unseen. In this case though, I am betting that B&H and Adorama will NOT have the same type of return policy for a 645Z that they do for Canon and Nikon 35mm gear.

Rick Knepper, photographer, shooting for pleasure. It is better to have It and not need It than need It and not have It. Various RAW comparisons at Link below. Includes 5D3 vs D800E (new uploads), 5D3 vs. 6D, Zeiss lenses etc.
