Does Anyone Else Miss DOF?

Re: Yes, it was a negative factor...but I kept dSLRs around to help.

I miss the shallow dof from zoom lenses. In FF 24-70mm and sometimes APS-C 17-55mm, f2.8 is enough to isolate the background. For my current Pana 12-35mm, f2.8 dof I found is not sufficient in many cases. Of course, I can use the prime lenses, but it offers less versatility.

But do I miss the dslr? not really. I'm really happy how compact m43 systems are. It's the compromise I was willing to make.
