Little price difference between UWA lenses in m43, APS-C, FF formats

It is interesting what you can learn using the DPR side by side lens comparison tool, especially when comparing lenses across different sized sensor formats. I was surprised to find that there isn’t a lot of price difference between UWA lenses being offered for FF, APS-C  and m43. It is also interesting that the Olympus 7-14mm f2.8 is closer in size and weight to the FF lenses than it is to the APS-C lenses.

https://www.dpreview.com/products/compare/side-by-side?products=nikon_16-35_4_vr&products=canon_16-35_4_p0_is&products=oly_7-14_2p8&products=nikon_10-24_3p5-4p5g_dx&products=fujifilm_xf_10-24&products=panasonic_8-18_2p8-4p0_asph&sortDir=ascending

So what’s my point? It’s just that comparing the different sized sensor formats in terms of lens price alone is not always as predictable as one might assume. Sometimes comparing get complicated.
