I came in here to post exactly this.

New technology is amazing!

Yes it does. Better ISO performance means faster shutter speeds which allow for larger apertures. And Photoshop now has a plug in to increase DOF even at small apertures.

Indeed. If you have clean ISO up to 3200 and good DR like in the E-M5 you can work at full aperture and let Auto ISO take care of the rest.

As for shallow DOF I suppose that even smart phones by now can simulate that. Just an overhyped painterly effect.
