I would love to be able to separate and induce bokeh in front and behind subjects at distances of 8 ft and on esp for Weddings and outdoor portraits similar to a 1.8 or 1.4 FF...the closest 4/3rd system has is the Voight 0.95 42.5mm...I have found that the bokeh is a little unusual but not unpleasing and sets the picture apart from the rest ....I have found the sharpness at 0.95 its a little dull at close range but gets better as you go out..Wouldn't it be GREAT if this lens had AF......

Another option with AF to give you similar subject isolation or the 42.5/0.95 and is sharp wide-open, is the Oly 75. Just need more working distance.
