    Hi Guys,

    Since we are in this discussion. If you are taking a couple from the side (example; Candids shot), should you focus on the couple nearest or further from you. Assuming I will need to use a smaller aperture to get more DOF.

    let say you want to cover the enough DOF for two faces, you focus at the one third away from the nearest face to the further face.

    focus at 1/3 away and f-stop? 5.6 or above? (trying to learn something everyday )

    to have enough DOF for covering the far and near points, has to depends on the focal length of the lens, the f-stops, the distant of the two points.
    you can use DOF preview button to check.

    hope this helps

    when you press the DOF button, the aperture will close down to the f stop you selected, so the viewfinder will dim down.

    some areas which is out of focus originally will become more in focus when you press the DOF button, unless you are using a wide angle lens and composing a wide shots, everything is already in focus.
