Re: Oly 17mm F1.8 DOF scale

For rather close distances probably all DOF calculators give unreliable results, because at close distances the lens probably actually has not 17mm but less.
Without knowing the lens construction this cannot be calculated exactly.
So when it is about close distances I would not be too surprised.


This lens has 17mm for minimum distance and max magnification.
g/b=0.08, g+b=250,1/g+1/b=1/f, solve for f - Wolfram|Alpha (wolframalpha.com)

However the DOF calculator could assume something else.
