Claiming a single company's 'PRO' line is the best is basically claiming they somehow have superior optical engineers. No expenses (or weight) are usually spared for Sigma ART or the 0.95 Noct, or the arm-breaking monsters known as L/GM lenses - so why would those optics be inferior, unless the designers were worse at their jobs?

So yes the company that just had to divest it's business probably has vastly better optical engineers than other companies. By a noticeable margin. /eyeroll

They're good lenses and cameras. Just be happy with that. There is no reason or need to measure them against others.

I am saying their engineers are better

Olympus can create something like this - Sigma cant

This statement is pretty funny given that we know with reasonably high confidence that Sigma holds the patent for at least the Olympus 45 PRO.
