Has anyone used this DoF tool here?

I've noticed several debates about DoF and equivalents compared to DX and FX cameras. I found this tool and saw that it seems to work pretty well...but it's just throwing math at it and it's not "real world" as such. But still interesting to play around with:

You can plug in the lens of your choice on the format of your choice and it will spit out what the equivalents are on other formats. For instance the Zuiko 75mm f/1.8 Lens for m43 would be a 150mm f/3.5 on a FX camera.

Yes, there are a lot of these calculators and apps out there that will spit out DoF, but this is kind of nice as it gives you a charge of all the different formats and gives pixel peepers even more to argue about
