In he studio, the Fuji is the clear winner.

Out and about, it is a different story. ..

Travel, I like a wide zoom, for the moment, the Fuji is a non starter.

I never do studio work, but definitely plan to travel with the camera, so may have a lot of street/spontaneous/wide needs.  Sounds like The OM-D will be better suited.

As to DOF, I know what really shallow DOF is, and with care, the OM-D can deliver what I need. For portraiture, I like both Nose and Eyes in focus, and that means the 45 1.8 is just fine.

Others have mentioned this lens too.  I'll investigate.

My true sports work has suffered in terms of subject isolation since moving to m-43rds.... I don't miss the D300/70-200 2.8 weight at all.

Hope that helps.

Very helpful - thank you.
