Re: Lens fundamentals - DOF, the zoom and the 35/1.4 and portraiture

this is true only if you shoot the portrait at the same distance with both lenses. but because 35mm is wider, for the same framing you will need to get closer to the subject and the DOF will become much more shallow for the 35mm. So, do the math again for the same framing and you will be surprised.
