Difference between 1.4 and 0.95 for M43
I made the transition from Canon bodies to the GH4, and the inability to achieve a shallow depth-of-field has been a difficult one to deal with.
I have the panasonic 25mm 1.4 and obviously the shallow dof is nowhere near a full frame 1.4. With the 4k 2.3 crop the 1.4 is around 3.22.
My question is, if I bought a 0.95 lens, would it make that much a difference compared to my 1.4?
I've used DSLRs in the past, from the 60D to the 5Dmiii, and I should be able to mathematically figure out the numbers based on past experience with lenses and f-stops...
...but, for anyone that has used a 0.95 lens on a M43 camera, is there a noticeable difference with the bokeh, particularity cinematically with video, between 1.4 and 0.95. I'm sure I could look at a chart, but does anyone have practical experience with these two types of lenses?
