Full-Frame Depth-Of-Field Question

I switched-over to a 5D MKIII(FF sensor) from a 50D(APS size sensor) camera.

It seems to me that this full-frame camera(5D MKIII) has about half the depth-of-field of my (50D).  No mater what f-stop I'm at.  At f/2.8 my 24-104L kit lens is almost worthless, the depth-of-field is so shallow.

Is this my imagination?  Whatz going on here?
