You asked. Here's the answer.

Evidence. LOL.

Go have some fun and shoot.

There is nothing extraordinary about anything I have said about GFX DOF.

I see the evidence every day when I shoot.

Go shoot some GFX and you will see.

But no worries. Carry on Sir.

Hey ... here is some GFX DOF. I took this a short time ago on a hike by our hotel.

Check out that beautiful glacier. Svinafellsjokul. The aiming point was on the close ice face, that was very far away. I took another one with the aiming point on the back mountains. Guess what happened?

They were both sharp. If they weren't, one was misfocused. You didn't use AF, did you? That's not reliable, for a single shot, although if you shoot enough shots with AF, you'll get one that's critically sharp.

And what do you think the tables say?

Let's say the near face is 400 meters away.

Diffraction will be a far, far greater source of blur than DOF.
