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

I've only been using m43 for two months, but in can't think of a time I've wished for less DOF in order to get a shot. Of course, I have an Oly 75/1.8 and a Nikon 50/1.8 to use as my portrait lenses.

in a way, shallow DOF is a defect we've come to associate with fast lenses, but it is an unnatural way to look at the world. Even in low light, with pupils wide open, we just don't see this way.

I do occasionally enjoy playing with this defect, but it's not a problem for me either way.
