Re: 2 m away at f/4

Thanks onlooker. That would then require me to crop the photograph to get the desired framing. Is that the way to go?

That depends on the size of your subject and the type of the subject. If it's a portrait, you do not want to get too close or the result might not be flattering to the subject.

With a 45 mm lens on MFT from 2 m your field of view will be approximately 50 cm x 80 cm. If you get closer to 1.5 m, your field of view would be approx. 40 cm x 60 cm. To maintain the same DOF at 1.5 m you would set your aperture to in between f5.6 and f/8.
