Because of the 5X focal length modifier, f/1.4 on the LX7 is like a 24mm f/7 lens on a full frame camera. Back in the days of film, people would have laughed at you if you said that a 24mm f/7 lens had too-shallow DOF to take pictures of kids.

I think Mark is talking about f/1.4 here on a 25 mm lens on m4/3 (50 mm EFL, equivalent aperture of f/2.8).

Correct.
