The key here is flexibility.

He was only able to achieve such similar shallow DoF with his EM5 when using a 75/1.8. That's equivalent to 150mm.

Which isn't that far off the 135mm he was using for a lot of the shots.

The 75/1.8 acts like a stopped down FF lens. The amount of blur clearly shows it.

I was talking purely with respect to focal length. As for the amount of blur though between shots it's very hard to judge. The heads in the 75mm shots are smaller with the models clearly further away and the models behind them look at a more similar distance than a lot of the 135mm shots. I know that obviously the 135mm can get a "shallower DoF" but I don't think these shots are the most fair representation.
