Here is an M43 comparo from DxO which might be of some assistance.

It may be suitable for your purposes, but it may also account for the rather poor showing as discussed by other posters, having viewed the results of this review. Or might they have used a defective lens?

@daqk,
The kit lens was not the best choice for this.

happy guardian: It is a good camera but too bad for Olympus no one at least here in North America is going to buy it. People prefer the entry level Canon T6 or Nikon D3400 which has the best sensor of 'em all entry level cameras.

I have both. The lenses are not so very different but the sensor size matters.

JT26: This is pretty awesome, if only they brought out a camera like this with fixed 28 or 35mm lens in a tiny both with a 20mp sensor. Smaller version of RX100 without a zoom, I would take it everywhere.

More like 16, 438.

Only about 10% larger, and with an APSC sensor.

I've already got one. It's called a Nikon Coolpix 'A.'

stomrunner: The sample photos look horrendous, washed out and lack detail. I was looking forward to this camera and boy, I'm shocked. Even my nearly 10 year old Canon Rebel can pull off much better shots. Either this 16mp sensor is complete rubbish or the person behind camera didn't know what he's doing.

I see no reason to update from my E-M10 MK1; same or similar 16mp sensor, imaging has probably not improved. I still get the best photos from my 24 mp NEX-7, and it is less clumsy/ much easier to handle.

It's the old adage....ooh I just forgot.

Yes, you would need to use crop mode with this lens. Nevertheless, it is not really designed to get optimum results on the full-frame bodies.
Of course there are numerous other e-mount lenses which are especially designed for FF sensors, and some of these Sony-made lenses are called FE.

Well the video says that this lens is intended for APSC sensors. Sony e-mount and Canon M.

captura: If f2.8 is OK, why not get the Samyang-Rokinon f2.8 14mm for just under $300, and save a bunch?
"The 14mm f/2.8 ED AS IF UMC Lens for Sony E Mount from Samyang is a manual focus, manual aperture, ultra-wide angle prime lens compatible with full frame and APS-C format Sony NEX mirrorless digital cameras. "

No I am not comparing. I just asserted my own very positive experience with the quality of Samsung lenses. If you have any contratictory evidence from review sites, please post these.

Reviews say otherwise:
"Samyang 7.5mm f/3.5 UMC Fisheye Handling and Features. . The build quality of this 7.5mm fisheye lens from Samyang is excellent. It feels very solid, despite only weighing 197g."
https://www.ephotozine.com/article/samyang-7-5mm-f-3-5-umc-fisheye-lens-review-19847
"At the first glance, the build quality of the lens is very good as it is assembled with very tight tolerances. The small body is made of high quality plastics based on a metal mount. The fluted focus ring operates smoothly and it's even dampened just like in the old days."

Samyang QC is bad? You've owned one? I have a Samyang 7.5 mm f3.5 for M43, it is spectacular, for the money.

maxnimo: I'm pretty sure my 1977 Minolta 50mm Rokkor is sharper than any of these three.

Not all 50mm Rokkors were created equal, and my 1977 MC 1.4 is not my most favourite.
