New to 5D. Where do I start?

Watch your DOF

One thing that caught me out from time to time after years of crop sensor use was overestimating the DOF in the shot - eg. on my 20D I knew that for a shot of a group of people, both front and back rows would be sharp at a given aperture.

When I started using the 5D, I was finding the back row not quite sharp on some occasions - it took a little retraining before I could guestimate what the 'zone of sharpness' would be using the 5D.

Cheers,

Colin
