Re: "Depth of field is insufficient"

"This forum in general seems to have a perverse need to seek superiority over photographers they deem as amateurs (and will seize every opportunity to bash this vast majority of shooters known as amateurs) but in my experience, advanced amateurs are at the cutting edge."

I had no intention to bash anyone here. The cited extract just gives a nice explanation why there are DOF markings on lenses at all (and moreover why there is the notion "depth of field" at all) and I agree with the explanation. The markings can be helpful or less helpful depending on what is done with the images. They are helpful if you don't use tripods and print small. They are less helpful if you print very large and pursue an image with rich detail.
