If you guys can't figure this out, how in the Hell are you going to figure out this whole DOF and MFL thing all these new GFX shooters are seeing?

It's really pretty simple. At the pixel level, you'll have the same DOF with the GFX 100 or GFX 100S as with an equivalent focal length lens on a Sony a7RIV, which has the same pixel pitch. At the picture level, with 3:4 aspect ratio, you'll need to stop down about one more stop with the GFX than you do with the a7RIV to get the same DOF.

Do the test, Greg.
