    Thanks, I am somewhat surprised at the f stop looking at the dof you have even with movements. What lens did you use? It is a lovely image!

    I wonder if the lens acts differently to a std lens? It could be the "real" f stop is smaller. I would expect with 10x8 and 210mm that to get that amount of dof you would need a much smaller stop. Perhaps someone with knowlege of the lens could chime in?
    Just thought, if you used a lot of extension that would reduce the f stop somewhat.
