If you want to have nice Bokeh and shallow DOF a M43 camera is not what you want. I have the X-Pro 1 with the 14, 18 and 35mm lens. I especially like that with the fast primes it is a substitute for a full frame camera if traveling light is important.

The 14mm I use in manual focus ( zone method ) about 90% of the time.

But if you really find an aperture ring and shutter dial cumbersome I recommend to get a Sony NEX.
