Size DOES matter to MY eyes!

Is it just me or if you go and look around at the forums of APS-C cameras and their photos and compare with photos that are posted on this forum you will notice a difference. APS-C cameras, to ME, seem to produce photos with a "fuller" feel to them, not "flat" like m4/3. Also, the color fidelity, sharpness and dynamic range of APS-C sensors are just better to MY eyes. Noise level is better controlled on APS-C sensors too. I just cannot get over the "flatness" of m4/3 sensors and that's a main reason why I went with APS-C sensors instead. I assume that FF sensors will be even better. Sometimes you just have to use you own eyes and not some fancy scientific comparison with fancy graphs and charts and numbers. I trust my eyes more than anything else!

An example of what a good APS-C sensor and the right lens can produce:

Can m4/3 sensor produce photos with this level of shallow dept of field, a sharp and rich dynamic range and fidelity and the overall sense of "fullness" instead of "flatness" that I often see from m4/3 sensors?
