You pretty much lost me when you quoted the classic FF addict's lament ... with a 4/3" sensor it is hard to separate the subject from the background.

A nonsense statement without all sorts of qualifications ...

Well, how about this as a qualification: for the same lens aperture, same framing, and same subject/focus distance, m4/3 makes it harder to separate the subject from the background because it has greater DOF compared to FF. I don't know why some people simply can't accept that.

I think quite a few people can't accept that because of the insistence that things have to be the same. Things are never the same, and this requirement is unnecessary and pointless in most cases. I think so far I have encountered only one person who wanted to shoot seamlessly with µ4/3 and a larger format at the same time. I never saw any other people giving a good reason for why things have to be the same.

It is not that hard to isolate the subject with the µ4/3 system, probably with the exception of the wide angle. It may be harder to obliterate the background, but this is beyond of simply "isolating" the subject.
