A recent mini review of the Sony A7 had this to say about the 35mm f/2.8 lens:

The shallow depth of field on the 2.8 lens is dreamy. Getting a nice shallow depth of field in a camera this compact feels like cheating.

Would someone please introduce this man to the Fuji 23mm f/1.4? It's a whole stop dreamier!

The 23/1.4 is twice as big. Also if the bokeh is smooth, it does give a more separation effect than harsh bokeh, leading to an illusion of shallower DOF. The Sony can take advantage of tiny M-mount 35/1.4 for minimum DOF. I'm not saying which camera+lens combo is better of course, just stating some facts.
