G1+20mm - expecting too much?
Feb 21, 2010

I am somewhat disappointed with the DOF on this combination, at f1.7 it's nowhere near as shallow as I was expecting.

eg my Norman church has 3 pillars in line, about 20ft apart. I was hoping to selectively focus on each one in turn from the same viewpoint, but there's not a lot of difference in the 3 shots.(Using spot focus).
Am I doing something wrong or just expecting too much from the G1 sensor?
