Quote:I agree with Brightcolors here. MFT is not the right place if shallow DoF is the _primary_ objective.I could not care less about shallow DOF (quite the contrary, to be honest - I hate this side of using large aperture lenses when actually shooting what I'm shooting - it's impossible to do any group portraits for example - but I appreciate getting a little bit more light). F/2.8 primes for my Canon make little sense to me because I have a 16-35/4 IS so when I'm not scrambling for more light, I'm just using this, whatever the circumstances. Why lug around a lens that gives you almost nothing worthwhile?
The efforts for producing these high-speed lenses are immense despite a less than exciting outcome (DoF-wise).
MFT remains the first choice when it comes to portability in combination with achievable field-of-view.
That being said I'm pretty much convinced that MFT has a "sufficient" DoF potential for 90% of the amateurs.
Quote:On a side note, was it not you who shot with a 1D mkIV which has an 1.3x crop factor, though?
Yes, that was me. So I would be getting a bonus of a wider actual FOV. Again, something to think about.
