Re: Potential dead horse: how bad is FF's deep DoF disadvantage?

"DoF is entirely a product of the aperture diameter. "

Technically yes, but consider this example - A 85mm f1.4 will has more DoF on DX camera than on FX camera for a headshot. Why? With DX, you have to step back few feet, thus increasing DoF. Same lens(aperture), different DoF(and prospective).
