Shallow depth-of-field is often cited as being a key part of the 'medium format look' but is that actually true? DPReview ( Chris Nichols and Jordan Drake) compared a Fujifilm GFX and Sony a7R IV for a closer look at the effect of format size on depth-of-field to find out.

Yes, I understand equivalency. But can’t you open up even more than 3.5 on the medium camera? Giving it an even shallower DOF. Something that is not possible on the other smaller formats. How would you compare a gfx 80mm 1.7? That’s got to have a shallower DOF than anything the other formats can do at a similar focal length. Am I missing something here? Please let me know. Thanks.
