Hi Mako,

Could you explain what you mean by "...the 35mm plane of focus falls outside the DOF consistently at f/1.8..". Thanks for your time.

I actually said it wrong. I should have said if the POINT OF FOCUS falls outside the DOF consistently. The plane of focus is the point directly between the farthest point that starts to show focus blur and the nearest point that shows focus blur (center of DOF). DOF is that range between closest in focus point and farthest in focus point. Ideally we want the point we focus on to coincide with the center of DOF or focus plain (with some minor caveats).

I think it's unacceptable if the Point of Focus consistently falls outside the DOF (and it can not be corrected by AF fine tune if the camera has that).....Nikon should fix that.

Thank you for correcting me. Hope I haven't confused more.
