Spectacle99: My second question:
2) Bokeh and shallow depth of field: I am considering getting this camera instead of an enthusiast DSLR, given its small size. But the one thing that concerns me is the sensor size here. I've seen all of the details and examples above, and it is clear that the OM-D does just as well as or better than its mirrorless and APS-C rivals all the way up through high ISOs. But what about depth of field? Amongst many other things, I want to be able to shoot nice flower and insect macros with a very shallow DOF, and a smooth, creamy bokeh background. Same thing, but less extreme, with portraits. How possible is this with this camera? And do you have any lens suggestions?
Bokeh on the OM- D? You bet! See for yourself in the article/photos at stevehuffphoto.com, click on the link to the article entitled, "1st Quick Look at the Voigtlander 17 and 25 f/0.95 on the OM-D".You will certainly be surprised, maybe even stunned. I'm new to this site so I don't know if links are allowed, but here's the link to the article itself: http://www.stevehuffphoto.com/2012/05/01/1st-quick-look-at-the-voigtlander-17-and-25-f0-95-on-the-om-d/
