Re: New NEX5n: Depth of Field and Focus Question

Kelvin, my experience has been that at these distances the depth of field is very narrow (even at the higher f-stops) and that when taking closeups handheld no matter how I steady myself my body still moves a small amount throwing out the focus. Try using a tripod, it improved my images immensely.
