I've had times where I've had an issue with DoF also... using the 25mm at f2 in an indoor arena, I had issues getting two people standing side by side but one slightly in front of the other in focus. On the smaller screen I didn't notice, so I didn't reshoot it. I assumed it would be enough since I was doing whole body shots, but I guess even then I needed to stop down more. I also missed a good shot with the 75, it focused on his ears instead of his face, and the thin dof kept his face out of focus.

What was nice about that photo is, while he knew we were taking pictures of him (he was my demonstration victim for another friend) we had caught him doing a glance around while waiting and it gave it an impression of deep thought (I have a dream!). The expression is a keeper, but the focus... ugh.
