Re: Depth of Field on the M43 is shallower

I posted a few days back that all things being EQUAL, the M43 camera will have a shallower DoF. People freaked and insited you must make things un-equal (and then called it equivalence - go figure) and stand a lot father away with the M43 camera to widen the DoF.

I even posted a link to DoF calculators proving this, but again everyone wanted to make the parameters un-equal.

So here is the truth:

A 50mm lens at F/1.8 on a FF camera at ISO200 will have the same exposure and more DoF as a 50mm lens at F/1.8 on an M43 camera at ISO200.

If one takes a picture with 50 F/1.8 lens on FF, then crop to APSC and m4/3 sizes, one would get less DoF ? Really ?
