Most would say that the micro43 format has a DoF DISADVANTAGE over FF.

Shouldn't that be "Some would say..." not "Most would say...."

Of course, it's all a matter of Point of View.

I like my Points of View to be all in focus, hence M4/3 works for me.

But then at times even with the Oly 11-22/2.8-4.0 lens and M4/3 I sometimes don't get enough DOF. I certainly used to curse a lot in 35mm film days at it's often too shallow DOF. So for this little bunny FF would be all pain.

Totally agree! Even with m43 I wish I could get deeper DoF without suffering diffraction!

...all systems suffer the same diffraction softening at the same DOF.  That doesn't mean that all systems resolve the same at the same DOF, however -- the system that began with more detail will always retain more detail, but that detail advantage will narrow as the DOF deepens.

And the cell phone guy, if I could get that DoF and the quality of m43 I would be even happier!

Ya canna change the laws of physics, Captain!
