Hi, I really don't want to go FF for this as I am happy with my MFT kit size and weight.

I shoot cars at about 3-5 meters away, I need very thin DoF, I bought a 35mm f1.2 but it didn't cut it, what lens could help?

The 75mm f1.8 looks to be a good choice and it is "affordable".

Voigtlander 42.5mm f0.95 it's a bit prohibitive but would work I think.

I am not into spending 1k plus on full frame glass + speedbooster.

Would any of the available native zoom lenses produce thin DoF?

Not sure why you want super thin DOF, but you could try the Sigma 56mm F1.4.

Not sure if you get enough in the frame from 3-5 meter, but you can easily try this with a zoom lens. I think the 75mm will be too long.
