Inb4: Ew tiny sensor, everybody buy Full Frame.

My take, the best advantage of M43 is that it is so light you can take it everywhere you go.
A camera and lens can be 18oz, and that's with high end model like EM5 II or EM5 III.

Only comparable system is Fuji X, but you will be spending at least $1000 in order to get a body with IBIS. Yes, in this day and age you def want IBIS.

You can buy a nice Canon R + 24-105 L, certainly it is better. But if you only use it like 3x a year, it's not worth it.

EM1 mark 3 does have a few things that make it a better device than EM5, for example: dual card, live ND, and faster eye AF.

that said, the brand new EM1 M3 is about 1499. so you paying extra 600 for the 12-100 F4. whether that's worth to you or not is debatable. all olympus lens are actually really good, even the el cheapo 99 dollar 45-150 lens or the 14-45 kit lens. so the benefit of constant aperture lens only truly worth it if you do serious videography, as you can have constant ISO for that smooth pan and zoom.

My phone's sensor is about 50% surface of this camera sensor.

Just want to add that the pro lenses has much better IQ at almost all focal lens except at the wide end.

Nope, also truly worth it if you want a high quality, weather-proof lens with a wide FL range. The cheap lenses are OK optically, but this one is certainly better and has the "Pro" label which means it's made to last, even under adverse conditions.

I agree though, this deal is not really slick.

That's a different topic completely. For sports big cameras are still way to go
Exactly, totally different topic. Nobody cares about your phone or tablet or whatever in a camera thread.

i feel the word "much better" is hard to quantify.
i do own a number of olympus lens, about 8 or 9 total, i have most of their premium prime lens and some F1.2 pros, i don't own their F4 lens so maybe that's different. but at least between kit lens, F 1.8 premium and F1.2 pro lens, if you pixel peeping, then maybe, but most times it actually is very close for the same aperture. (but obviously no one buys F1.8 or F1.2 and use it only for F4)
you could also head to DXO mark and check out their measurements. the P-pixel count is actually quite close.

do i wish i can see huge difference between the kit 14-45 lens vs 1000 dollar 17mm F1.2 to justify the spending? heck yes, but in actuality the difference isn't that ground shuttering under the same condition.
