Hey guys...

So I'm really, really, REALLY wanting an Olympus OM-D right now. I travel a ton and I would love a weathersealed, compact, light, high quality body.

Two things are keeping me away right now:
- The 9-18 lens isn't weathersealed (this would be my most-used lens)
- While I don't shoot a lot of stuff with shallow DOF, I do enjoy the option of doing it...

Losing TWO STOPS of DOF with the M 4/3 sensor seems like a lot...but maybe I'm wrong...

So please show me the best bokeh/shallow DOF shots you got with your M4/3 setups...please post which body/lens you took it with an the basic settings (mainly, the f-stop).

Thanks!!! :)

Tamas

Here are two taken with the Olympus OM-D EM-5. The first one is at 45mm f1.8. The second one is at 20mm f1.7.

This is my kind of topic.
All of the were shot on a Pen EPL1 with an adapted 50mm Minolta md lens, f1.4
And I'm willing to bet I shot all of these wide open because I have a serious addiction to bokeh.
I'll try to stay conservative with how many I post.

This is the first photo I ever took with the lens, testing it right after popping it on.

5 year bump or not, this is a good idea for a thread! I don't shoot wide open all that often, usually just for exposure needs, but I'll throw some photos in.

NOTE: The sensor is not this noisy. I'm shooting strictly Tri-X pushed to 1600 for film from now on, so I'm trying to keep the look constant. The high ISO performance is pretty good, I just added grain for consistency's sake.

Just got the Mitakon 25mm f0.95 (50mm f1.9 FF equivalent) and it's pretty cool! Shot wide open:
