Tom, everyone, thanks fro your comments, ideas and compliments. My usually reliable GRD3 seemed to have been playing up but I have tried my snap at 1.5 m instead of the 1.0 and things seem to have improved.

There seems to be quite a difference between the two. With the rudimentary scale on the left showing the depth of field on A ( aperture preference) at f6.3 at snap focus 1m, I seem to get a very limited DOF. Say between 0.7 to 2.00 m only, yet at snap focus 1.5m, I am told I will get from 1.5m to infinity.Any idea why there is such a difference or is this just showing the inaccuracy of the scale on the left.

I seemed to have luck ( albeit in good light) with the camera set in Camera mode as well as in Aperture preference. - that surprised me too.......
