The problem is that most outstanding EF lenses that designed and optimized on FF sensors have no APS-C counterparts that cover the same or close FL.

True, that is a problem...and mostly a result of a business choice.

Unlike APS-C platform that Canon and Nikon don't commit all resources in and not the only choice in their lineup, Panasonic and Olympus commit 100% of their resources into this mFT platform and design and optimize with the best effort on mFT lenses that work better than lenses designed for larger-format and used thru adapters.

Indeed. And that's why, as far as I'm concerned, the choice is either Canon / Nikon FF or other brands. Which is a shame, as I could very well be interested in Canon or Nikon APSC cameras if they had the primes lineup to back them up.

It possibly is a business decision. But one that makes me look with strong interest at other brands.

Or it could simply be that they aren't particularly clever decisions-makers. Sony's lens lineup is a pretty telling example of that.

In any case I don't think it's a question of resources. Nikon has been releasing a new 18-xxxxxxxx super mega giga zoom every year while they could have easily released a few fast higher-end zooms or primes instead.
