I don't think it's clear at all that the DoF difference isn't noticeable between the two lenses. Rather, I don't think Robin is playing it quite straight. Notice in the shots with the peppers, for example, that the Oly shot is focused closer than the PL shot, which makes a big difference re: the background blur? I think he picked his shots to downplay the difference.

I saw that.  I also saw the Oly image had greater background blur in that sample, but I wrote that off due to the difference in focus.  That is just one sample.  How do you explain the other samples where you have to look hard to see a tiny difference?
