I tend to compare the "quality" of lenses at the same AOV and DOF. I can't quite find the sense in comparing wide open when the DOFs are different, just like I can't quite find the sense in comparin UWA to telephoto.

Nevertheless, you just did. You said the FF 24/1.4s had more DoF control and more light-gathering ability. Now how can you say that if you insist that DoF must always be kept constant for comparison.

Oh dear -- did you just say there's not enough blur?

You bet ya'! You should have used your MF camera with 50/1.4 for this. Or taken a few steps backwards into that arcade right behind you and put on your 150/3.6.

Myself, I don't know the history. I imagine, just as now, there were people who liked shallow DOF, and people who didn't, and what constituted "too shallow" was subjective.

In all likelihood you are right. There are always individual exceptions no matter what the predominant thought patterns are like. The issue here what was à la mode and not, and that's different for sure.
