Re: It has less DOF for the same FOV, aperture and distance to subject


Agree - the lens on FF has less DOF.  The same lens doesn't change - it doesn't know what size sensor is behind it.  But the calculators don't use the same formula for the two formats.  Quite apart from the FOV and distance changing for a given composition, the tables and calculators change their circle of confusion used in the calculation for FF and APSC.  (For a given print or screen image, the enlargement ratio is different for the two formats - APSC is blown up further so what is OOF appears OOF earlier to the viewer.)
