I've always heard that medium format was THE way for the shallowest DOF possible. Maybe it is correct for the analogic medium format, but it seems that it's not true anymore for the digital one, usually sporting a "mere" 0,6... crop factor (if not higher).
The FF system seems more capable of providing the shallowest DOF, offering lenses like 24 f1.4, 35 f 1.4, 50 f1.2, 85 f1.2, and so on...
Am I missing something?

SculptedPhotography: The 5D was and is my first digital camera. It has served me with spectacular results. It's main minus for me has been its inability to use the higher ISO's, as anything higher than 200 produces visible grain in images that I print very large on my epson 24" printer. I almost always shoot with a monopod to assure the results.
Technology has changed and improved and I am searching for a replacement. I am invested in excellent Canon lenses and want to stay with Canon. I also want a camera that is not as heavy as my 5D (I am old and am fatigued by the weight of the 5D which I affectionately call "my brick".) Price is an issue too.
Still casting about trying to find a replacement.

No, unfortunately you are not able to shot video, neither by installing Magic Lantern (because the camera is not equipped with live view).

vratnik: how did you calculate 1024 x 768 pixels as 2.3M dots ?

(1024 x 768) x 3 (the number of RGB channels) = 2.3M pixels approximatively

Cheating or not, I'd prefer the original image... Why the sky shouldn't be interesting? It doesn't sound flat or imbalanced at all!

On photo La Corrèze in the -Blue Sky Red Bricks- (Provide a Border, Title and Date) challenge (9 comments in total)

Nice pic, but:
- blue sky? mmh, the reflection in the window is still a very marginal element, not a protagonist as the title of the contest asked for...;
- red bricks?! Not at all. A brick is "a block, or a single unit of a CERAMIC material" (Wikipedia). These are blocks of painted (?) sandstone...
Sorry, but in my opinion your photo had to be disqualified...
