I care about the final image I see from the lens, not a bit about the lab test. Some differences look significant on a chart, in the math, and don't show up at all in a photo because you have to zoom to infinity to see it. I don't stick my face on a print and I don't care what a tiny part of a composition looks like on a monitor. I care only about the entire composition.

That's perfectly fair although in that case if the differences seen in tests charts don't really bother you at all then I expect you're overgeared with m43 and might even be happier with something like an RX10 IV.  This is not meant to be any kind of snarky comment btw, it's really a fantastic camera with better AF than any of the m43 bodies and the image quality differences are only going to show up in the test chart/pixel peeping type scenarios.
