Fact is that using a DX sensor overall gives you shallower depth of field than a full frame sensor.

Just wanted to correct myself there - a DX sensor overall gives you greater depth of field.

Actually, you were right both times.

DX will give you a shallower DOF at the same focal length and f-stop, and a deeper DOF at the same framing and f-stop.

In practice it's the lens focal length which the photographer changes according to the sensor/film size, not the distance to subject or framing.
