3. If you are not in close up or street photography there is still a strong point for more DOF: when taking pictures of kids or pictures of more people. With a full frame DSLR you need to stop down to make sure that all persons are in focus. It happened to me a couple of times that I shot at f2.8 just to find out that the second face is out of focus.

*Nod*.

People routinely forget about this important difference: larger DOF also means less OOF shots. And even some OOFs are still good for web resolutions.

Many years ago I went with Oly 43 cams and the larger DOF was one of the major reason. Now, without much thought, II'm too buying into the m43.

I also see greater DoF as an advantage of M43. When I was using fim cameras, I generally required greater DoF for the pictures I took. I often used the DoF scale marked on the lens (as in the OM system lenses) for zone focussing, which served me well. That's something I miss with digital cameras that have AF.
