Another thing that hasn't been mentioned is that only the FoV is cropped, perspective compression and distortion remain unchanged as they are dependant on focal length. For 50mm on FF, you still need a 50mm on m43, you will just have to be a bit further back. Or you can remain the same distance using a 25mm, but the photos are ultimately different.

Perspective compression and distortion is ONLY dependant on distance to subject.

The photos Ulric provided are surely substantial to the discussion, but the effect I refer to is not apparent. So there, I am confused. Here is a (better?) demonstration of what I meant:
