Rendering Bokeh with Micro Four Thirds?

Though there are many factors that contribute on how to render a good bokeh, one of this is the lens itself. At a large aperture and longer focal length, it can create that delicious bokeh you have been wanting. Mind also the distance to subject and distance to background – these are also equally important factors.
Why Micro 4/3s? Because the array of lenses that are available today is a lot, and probably uncontested by any other mirrorless format t0-date. One of the lenses is the Olympus 45mm 1.8.
