Once upon a time when I was shooting FF - back in old film days - my biggest concern was to get enough DOF, not the opposite.

Same here. And we were hardly alone. In fact, I can't remember anyone talking back then about how important it was to get really fast lenses for maximally shallow DoF. Everyone wanted fast lenses to cope with slow film and low light. The shallow DoF that came bundled with those wide apertures was an unwelcome side effect. But times they are a changin' and I think we both understand why.
