MFT Users: Do you miss the shallower depth-of-field of bigger sensor cameras?

not really

I found the DOF vs FOV relationship for the APS-C geometry a better compromise overall than full-frame, where I was constantly struggling to create enough DOF. I don't much notice the difference between APS-C and 4/3s sensor sizes. I thought I might lack for DOF control when using my 12-35/2.8, but it hasn't been an issue.

I know you can buy fast MFT lenses for more aperture control, but I'm probably going to just stick with a cheap 14-42 for various reasons.

Just don't try a 12-35 or 12-40. Priorities might change.
