You kids keep screaming DOF DOF DOF. Short DOF is possible with mirrorless. With care and the right lenses you can get pleasing background blur. You're not going to do it with a wide consumer zoom but it can be done.

This is exactly right. With a proper choice of optics, a m43 mirrorless is as versatile as 35mm. I know because I use both.

(samples with a similar subject, top: 35mm digital; center: 35mm film; bottom: m43 digital)

I don't think there's any need to explain how 35mm can make a sharp landscape photo, is there?
