To be fair, almost any lens wide open is soft, but I get your point.

On the flip side, it's great when you need a lot of extra light - you can open up to 0.95 and still be getting the depth of field of a 1.8 so you're getting a bunch of light and at least a chance of getting things in focus at the same time ?

I like the 0.95 lenses on M43 and use them all the time. Still, FF does things M43 can't and visa versa.  That's all.

That's one of the huge advantages of MFT - having a bright exposure and not having to contend with a razor thin DoF.

It took me ages to realise that and I couldn't work out why people were saying that getting f0.95 lenses for low light was ridiculous because they unusable and I was thinking "it's not that hard actually" - then I realised they were thinking about FF exposure and DoF and I had one of those "ah ha!" moments! :)

Agreed.

Fast wides are a weakness, but if you shoot sports then you can laugh in the face of those people with their hernia-inducing 800mm prime lens setups!
