Re: Beware the DOF scale on the lens

In my experience you can no longer trust the DOF scale on the lens in quite the same way you would have done on a 35mm film camera. Take some test shots and work out how much usable DOF the lens seems to produce in practice. For me its always less than that indicated on the lens scale.

Should be less if you bellieve the non-sense of the DOF of a lens changing depending on how much you crop the print.
