What are the depth of field considerations?

For large prints, missing your focus point by a little bit can make a real difference. Yes, you have more DOF with a wideangle lens, but that can actually make it more difficult to tell if something is truly in focus. What looks sharp through the view finder may look like mush in a 16x24" print. With live-view, I can set my focus point exactly where it needs to be, zoom in to 100% and get the focus as sharp as possible, then stop the lens down to shooting aperture and make sure everything that needs to be sharp, is sharp.
