He said with "fast lens." That's what I mean. Let me restate itthis way: In general, with fast lens on the m43 system, it is not difficult to achieve subject isolation via DOF. The bokeh may be less blurred and dreamy, but it's still there in most situations. It is not "difficult" per the OP's suggestion in his blog.

I think people seem to be insecure and defensive over the word "difficult".  Ok, so don't use the word "difficult" if you don't want to.  But shallower DOF and subject isolation is still easier to come by, or achieve, when using a FF camera.

As with all things, there are pros and cons.  With FF, it's easier to achieve subject isolation with a big sensor, but with a big sensor comes big bodies and big lenses.  With m4/3, it's harder to achieve subject isolation, but the advantage is that you have a more compact camera system.  Just face the facts, understand the pros and cons, and get on with your life.  Don't make it "difficult", lol.
