Let's ban the phrase "DOF control"

All lenses offer "DOF control" except those that have their apertures stuck.

If people mean "shallow DOF" then they should say it instead of using a stupid euphemism. You might prefer the Oly 45mm f/1.8 over the Panny 45mm f/2.8 because it can produce shallower DOF, not because it offers "DOF control".
