Fair enough.

I said DSLR because that's still what most people buy and what most people think of when they think shallow DOF portraits and that's what the Sony guy compared to in the quote by the OP. Don't read too much into this (well too late for that, I guess).

The implication is there. Why not say an aps-c sized sensor camera which makes it much clearer? Why mention the DSLR type in the discussion when it is not at all relevant given that there are now 4 aps-c CSC formats available? Just pointing this out, not really defending anything though I do think DSLR's are rather large to be practical for most people's uses. There will of course likely to be a specialised use for a small number in the future but they will cost and the manufacturers will move away from producing them whatever their merits.

You seem a bit defensive. I mentioned a specific type of camera, but nowhere did I say it was the only possible combination of photographic devices in the world capable of such results.

Why specifically a DSLR? I have a Samsung NX100 with a 30mm f2.0 lens which easily goes into a coat pocket and an Olympus Pen EPL2 m43 with a 45mm f1.8 lens both of which give a nice shallow DOF for portraits in a comparatively compact form factor. Could you explain why the bulky reflex mirror is necessary which is what you seem to be saying? Surely any aps-c sensor m43 with a kit lens would do?

All of these new "uber" compacts are really just starting to approach the DOF control capabilities of an APS-C DSLR with a kit lens.
