Secondly is the depth of field. To get decent bokeh type backgrounds on my shots I have to be close up to my subjects. I have to be low down on the aperture. The DSLR cameras appear to be able to beat this in every way without having to get as close and without having to go as low on the aperture.

With a 550D?  It is like 1 stop.

Less than a stop. The crop difference between μ43 and Canon APS-C is 1.25--225 sq. mm vs. 328 sq. mm. That's more like half a stop. He'd see little difference in DOF at all while getting a lot more bulk.

Pebbleheed: You've gotta go to FF to get there. If that's what you need to do, then do it.
