"Silly exercise" JohnG...? I don't recall saying a bridge was a good as a DSLR with regards DOF....
Merely demonstrating to aludden what's achievable with a "bridge"....
As for a shallow DOF inside a room- indeed,not really possible for a small sensor camera (who said it was ?)- though given that aludden doesn't want to carry multiple lenses (including a fast prime) I thought I'd display what was possible with his options- that being a DSLR and 1 lens,or a "bridge"....

If you're just worried about noise, your 7 year old Nikon D80 outperforms the new Panasonic FZ200 by quite a large margin.

Goodness me boys & girls
considering that I started this thread with what I thought was a simple, informational display of noise levels between several small sensor cameras & one APS-sensor camera - now see where it has gone ... !
