Miss what?
In reply to Superzoom2, Feb 10, 2014

My 'FF' days were film, with slow third party lenses... I was shooting birds, trains, buildings, and the occasional sunset.  Shallow DoF? never came into the picture.

When I moved to 4/3 (from a C2100UZ) and started to play w macro, it was more a matter of how far I could stop down and still get the picture.

It's only since I've moved to m43 and picked up a couple f 1.8 primes that I even tried playing w shallower DoF...

Note that I did have an OMZ 50mm f1.8 w my OM4, but never used it... just didn't find the FoV to my liking
