This result is close-but-not-quite equal to my dSLRs. The main downside here is the smearing and noise in the shadows. You can scale this to 100% in the gallery view to decide for yourself.

If the subject is very close you can force a little bit of blurring in the background. While sharp, the 10mm lens isn't all that hot in the bokeh department though.

The result is pleasant enough, but no one is going to mistake the output as being from a full frame dSLR. Of course having a wide DOF can work in your favor sometimes, if that's what you want.
