Agreed. My first impression was that Sample 1, identified as a shot in Background Defocus mode, is not really a good sample of that technology. Even a smaller sensor should be able to blur a background with that much separation from the subject.

Which smaller sensor camera are you thinking about? If the EXIFs are correct, that's a pretty good background blur given the focal distance (45 mm).

I wasn't thinking of any specific camera. What I really meant, I guess, was that this camera, with its larger sensor and glass, should be able to produce comparable results without relying on electronic manipulation, and would thereby avoid the ghosting another poster pointed out above. What I'd really like to see is a set of two or more images taken with and without the Background Defocus mode to demonstrate how the camera performs each way. I guess that'll have to wait for full reviews.
