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

If would call it selective focus more than as hallow DOF. In many pictures I want to draw attention on the subject, so I will try to isolate it and focus on it. formthe rest of the picture I want to control the amount of blur myself, that's why I mainly use Full Frame cameras.

I started with mFT some years ago but it doesn't give me this possibility. Yes there are some expensive fast portrait lenses now, but they are not very usefull as I prefer a wider angle between 24 and 50mm for my pictures. Here it's very difficult to blur anything thats further away than 2m on mFT.

Since the A7r I really enjoy having he option to use FF or smaller crop lenses without any flaws. For me it's the best to have all possibilities in one camera and one mount.
