I have two inputs here

First

The Olympus and Sony lens the m43 lens has 19 lens elements and the FF has 14.

That will impact the light transmission.

The second thought is that to print a picture to a given size you will have to enlarge the image from the 43 sensor twice as much as from the one from the FF sensor.

This will test the optics, the MTF resolution of a m43 lens will have to be two times better than the FF lens.

They seldom are

My choise of the m43 system is not for it’s improved quality compared to FF.

All good points. I should have looked more closely at lens element number when making the comparison.  Also good point about MTF values.
