Accept the facts. Everything has its pros and cons.

You pretty much lost me when you quoted the classic FF addict's lament ... with a 4/3" sensor it is hard to separate the subject from the background.

A nonsense statement without all sorts of qualifications ...

Well, how about this as a qualification: for the same lens aperture, same framing, and same subject/focus distance, m4/3 makes it harder to separate the subject from the background because it has greater DOF compared to FF.  I don't know why some people simply can't accept that.  I use FF and APS-C, but I also use m4/3.  The difference in DOF, background blur, subject isolation is quite obvious, especially when doing side by side comparisons when framing the same shot and using the same aperture.  Heck, the difference is obvious even when comparing FF vs APS-C!  But you face the facts, make your choices, and get on with your life.  I love m4/3 because of its very compact size, so when it comes to minimal size, m4/3 is better.  But when I want maximum background blur and subject isolation, FF is better,
