Watch your DOF
In reply to ajimon, Jun 12, 2009

One thing that caught me out from time to time after years of crop sensor use was overestimating the DOF in the shot - eg. on my 20D I knew that for a shot of a group of people, both front and back rows would be sharp at a given aperture.

When I started using the 5D, I was finding the back row not quite sharp on some occasions - it took a little retraining before I could guestimate what the 'zone of sharpness' would be using the 5D.
