Please a little help with DOF of 25/1.4 vs. 45/1.8 ??

Hi gys,

for those who either own or have used both, could you tell me which of the PL 25/1.4 (which I have and love) or Oly 45/1.8 gives shallower DOF, for an equivalent FOV (meaning I don't mind coming in closer to the subject with the 25mm to emulate the reach of the 45).
Opinions backed up by pictures would be even better

I'm a shallow DOF nut so though I'm very happy with my move to m4/3, I do have to find work arounds to still get my super blurred backgrounds.
Any input welcome,

Marla.
