Personally though, as I said, I am happy to make do with lenses in the range from f/1.7 to f/2.0. That's as much equivalence as I need.

What is your answer to pedestrian lenses like the 16/17-40, 24-xx, 70-200 on FF, all f/4? Not to mention f/2.8 zooms? Do not tell me you own one of those f/2 zoom monsters.

No I don't. If I want more subject isolation by means of background blur than my MFT zooms can provide, I carry a prime or two for that particular purpose (usually 45/1.8 and/or 75/1.8). I prefer more "FL control" (more lenses in my bag rather than in a drawer back home) to more "DoF control".

Are you trying to say that the DOF at f/4 on FF is too shallow???
