A prime lens will invariably have a better IQ than a zoom.Even the the best L zoom lenses cannot in most cases beat the prime L lenses at similar focal lengths.. The EF-M 22mm lens for which I paid £99 is sharper than the 18-150mm lens which costs four times as much. Comparing the two at similar focal length. The two examples are not absolute matches but similar.However, the 18-150mm lens is the one which is routinely attached to my M50.

I have just returned from a two week holiday in Montenegro, and used the 18-150mm lens throughout from 18mm right through to 150mm. Maybe I have a good copy, but unless one looks at the photos on DPP at + 400% are all excellent, and perfectly good for what I want.(I have posted examples elsewhere on this forum).

18-150mm

22mm

are they taken on the same day?? i note the different colour balance

There is no argument for FF vs APS-c (or m43) with shallow DOF..as it's a law of physics and a very subjective personal thing if you want to make use of the shallow DOF only FF can offer
