But seriously and all kidding aside, do the arithmetic. The results may surprise you a little. That a short lens can, in special circumstances, give more DOF than a long one in the equivalent final print was a surprise to me.


Howdy Dan,

I am a bit confused, I would expect a shorter length lens to give more DOF field..than a long lens...

I rarely shoot zoom lenses, but do use super telephotos all the time in the wildlife work I do..

Have a good one.
