That's because to get the same DOF you'd get with FF you need to shoot 2 stops faster with MFT. f2.8 is the 'relative' aperture.

Right, I understand that (it's also stated in the comments section that 2.8 on mFT has equivalent DOF as 5.6 on FF). My question (that I neglected to ask) is how to satisfy the claim that true equivalence can be achieved?

I'm not sure what 'true' equivalence is. However, when two cameras are set the same in terms of equivalence it means:

The Dof is the same

The angle of view is the same

The noise is the same (assuming similar levels of sensor technology).

All other differences (such as 4/3 instead of 3/2, colour differences, DR differences) are not consider matters of 'equivalence'.
