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

It goes both ways.

No camera system is perfect, for me the DoF argument goes both ways.

I LOVE my Canon 5D with the Sigma 50mm f/1.4. Amazingly smooth, creamy and artifact free bokeh. Almost effortless to achieve.

Sure, you can achieve similar shallow DoF using these 4/3 and APS-C sensors, but that same flexibility isn't there.

On the other hand, sometimes I miss the deeper DoF of m43s, because there will be the times that I want to use the aperture wide open without getting paper-thin DoF.
