What's a handicap is being force to stop down a μ43 lens when f/1.4 is the DOF you want but you can't use it because the mid-day sun is too bright...conditions where f/2.8 on FF would have been perfectly fine.

That "handicap" can be lifted if you use faster shutter speed or use ND filters.

Since I never use a tripod, I'm glad to be able to use faster shutter speed and get clearer pictures. Just in very rare cases (essentially when I'm using Voigtländer lens), I'll reach 1/4000 sec (the limit on an OM-D e-m5) and be "forced" to use ND filters or to stop down.
