Surely a good photographer, but I'm not sure she would survive a dof/noise/usability debate over here with sloppy logic like she displays here..
I'd say her logic is spot-on for her type of photography and for a lot of forum group-think in general. Minimum DOF, maximum ISO performance seems to be the general internet mantra in a lot of places when it comes to FF / m43, and here is a pro photorapher arguing against that, at least from her perspective and her photography.
I can agree, up to a point. She brings up weddings as an example, and in some circumstances, sure, the razor-thin DOF of FF is a hindrance and the shooter should stop down (she uses this argument to equalize ISO arguments).
However, I've seen plenty of very nice shots with adequate DOF with a 35mm on FF around f/1.4 or f/2 that just wouldn't be possible with the same FOV on m43 and would look a bit more busy (because more of the background would be in too much focus).
All situational IMO.
I will say, having shot a full wedding using all mirrorless (OMD, GX1 and NEX-5N), shooting processions is NOT fun with the OMD or any mirrorless camera. Also, around ISO 3200 shots (which happen in dark meeting halls) from the OMD just can't hang compared to FF, DOF be damned.
Again, very situational.
