    FYI-If you're after the "filmic" look; the M4/3 sensor is actually closer in size to 35mm movie film than the 'full frame' sensor is. The full frame 'look' you refer to, stems from still cameras and has only recently come into vogue for video shooters. It has a shallower depth of field than film ever had.
    I understand the math. I realize the size differences arent drastic. Im just telling you what I experienced playing with the cam. Yes they had a 35mm camera lens with a speedbooster and I tried that as well. Now, given the benefit of the doubt. I don't know what the fstop was set to on the lens, the Panny rep just slapped it on there and said to take a look. And it was on the other side of the wall from their lighted display. Sure it was some better , and probably tinkering with it and lighting subjects properly you could get it to look more shallow. But now you've spend $400 on a speed booster and lost your auto focus and some other cool features of the GH4. I guess I'm used to my Nikon D800 full frame, where you get filmic shallow DOF without trying that hard to achieve it. :-) Don't misunderstand, I liked the GH4 and there's a good possibility I will buy one...or wait for a 4k version on the Nikon or Canon DSLR to come out.

    EDIT: This guy got some good shallow DOF with it a couple months ago at the WPPI it seems:
