I used to use manual-focus lenses (including a zoom) that had detailed DOF scales on them. It was easy as pie to preset the DOF. I'm very disappointed that my new, autofocus lenses (Nikkors) offer much less information about the DOF, thus making it harder to preset it. I can use the DOF preview, but I miss the thrill of getting to set the lens so that everything looks out of focus, and then receiving slides that are sharp front to back. Does anybody else here miss that?
