I've used Lumix and Fuji extensively, with G2 then GX7 from Panasonic and X-E2 and 3 plus X-T2 from Fuji.

Had kit zooms and a selection of primes for both.

I gave away all my Lumix gear and went 100% Fuji, with the X-E3 plus 27mm and 35mm being my favourite combination.

The micro 4/3 sensor is just too small to get enough control over depth of field for creative purposes, unless you use a very wide aperture prime (or your subject is very close and your background is in the next State).

So a micro 4/3 body plus a kit lens will give you lots of so-so mobile phone-esque images.

The APSC sized sensor is the 'Goldilocks' size.  Just big enough for creativity and low light, but not so big the lenses get big and heavy.
