Now, you suggested going with 17mm f/1.8 for OMD instead. Obviously then, control over DOF is not your requirement since the MFT sensor will turn it into a f/3.6 equivalent in that regard. And while you give that up (compared to a f/2.8 anyway), you also don't really gain on speed since you could use slightly higher shutter speed with APS-C.

If we take the DXO charts as gospel, I can actually use a slightly higher shutter speed on my OMD than my A65, once we move past ISO 100. Seriously, whatever magic Sony put into that iteration of the sensor they did for Olympus, it's ridiculous.

As for DOF control, meh. It's my preferred street focal length, but the aperture is for exposure.
