That said M43s doesn't do shallow DOF

Doesn't it?

Yes, my statement was an over generalisation, but it cannot do shallow DOF in comparable situations. You either need to use the 45, 75 or 35-100 (remembering to multiply by 2 for equivalent FF focal length) or get close to your subject for really decent bokeh (I hate the bokeh from the 25, even if the lens is otherwise good). What I should of said is "M43s has a sensor 1/4 the size of FF so shallow DOF is relatively harder to achieve than FF". I will acknowledge that the Oly 75mm is probably one of the best portrait lenses available for any system, but the price for that is the extreme focal length.
