Honestly, the practical difference in DOF control between m43 and APS-C is pretty insignificant - what is it that you can't achieve with the slightly smaller format, especially as ridiculously fast legacy lenses are plentifully available to supplement the native system? 

So: Sensor size generally matters, the larger the sensor, the more subtle the transition from sharp to unsharp will look. That is visible and adds to the esthetics of the shots. At least in my own practical experience.

Sounds very much like an article of faith to me. Is there any science behind it?
