    Default Olympus E ED 50mm f2.0 Macro DOF

    I added the EX-25 and went out to take some macro flower shots with my E-500. The first thing I focused on gave me these results...I changed my aperture from f2.0 through f16. I know that the dof is going to be small but I take off the EX 25 and the DOF inproves.I want to get more into the macro world ....HELP !!!!

    Welcome to the site, I am going to move this up to the the technical discussion, down in the reviews forums are just for reviews, and many don't venture to these parts.
    But simply the more magnification the smaller DOF. You may want to download Locus - to gain practical info about how DOF works.
    But figure that you will need to have a Big Dof (depth of field) which will put you at around F16-22

    living in the macro world is all about a really small DOF,, at times I would like to see 1/8" DOF available to help capture more,, just no way when your working in this arena,, hang a bellows on the font and you start working with 1/32" DOF,, just some of the challenges if you want to do photography in this area,, is another world that many never get to see,,

    I also do digascoping of birds through a telescope which is so close to macro,, focus is so important for the small depth of field offered,,

    both are a skill only obtained by many hours of effort and dedication,,
