Re: Oly 17mm F1.8 DOF scale

Yes I think this.
Generally I think DOF calculators are not too accurate.
They can use simplified formulas.
For my purposes this doesnt matter, I want only a rule of thumb result and comparable results.

There is a special macro calculator here, possibly try this. I have no experience with it.
You must select a camera, but because the calculator does not use the Megapixels of sensor, but only sensor size, you can probably choose any MFT camera.


Also consider, if you crop the image in post, you must divide the DOF values by the crop factor.
