Re: f/1.8 on m4/3, ASP-C, FF; are they the same?

No, the DOF of a 20mm f/1.7 on µ4/3 is the same as the DOF of a 40mm f/3.4 on 35mm for the same subject magnification.

As far as depth of field is concerned, to get the same DOF as a FF lens with matching subject magnification, a µ4/3 lens requires two stops wider aperture.

To put it another way, the DOF of µ4/3 is greater because it is a small sensor size.
