Re: Micro 4/3 can do soft bokeh!

You beat me to it in regards to the 12-100 F4 Pro (an F8 FF Eq. DOF lens)...If you know what you are doing you can get beautiful bokeh from this lens...

Sure a 70-200 F2.8 on FF will be way better for that 3D pop from the background for portraits...So I am not saying that the 12-100 F4 Pro is better than FF, all I am saying is that you can get great bokeh if you know how to frame your shot in a way that maximizes the distance of subject to background...

Below are a few example pics of mine taken with the 12-100 F4 Pro...I have many many more where these came from...Yeah...I know "flower pics"...which are easy to get bokeh from...but I just want to show that even an F8 FF Equivalent DOF lens can still get decent bokeh...
