Depth of field question
Dec 22, 2012

How much variations in depth of field can different glass designs produce among lenses of identical focal length and settings? In other words, will a modern Nikkor 200mm f/2 and an ancient Nikkor 200mm f/4 AIS, both set at f/5.6 and focused at 3 meters have the exact same amount of depth of field?
