A7s, Depth-of-Field, and the Micro-4/3 AdvantageDoes the A7s' high-ISO capability effectively negate the dof advantage Iâ€™d otherwise get by choosing a Micro 4/3 camera? (Assuming Iâ€™m trying to achieve maximum dof.) In other words, shouldn't I be able to match even the deepest dof I could get with an m4/3, just by stopping-down and boosting the ISOâ€¦and of course changing the lens to match perspective, etc? Here's the thing: I'm bumping up from teeny-chip camcorders with 10x (yes, thatâ€™s double-digits) crop factors, and from this point-of-view, and in light of the A7s, the dof advantage of a 2x crop vs. FF seems almost non-existent. Iâ€™m wondering if I shouldn't skip over the m4/3 sensors and go with the A7s. (Iâ€™m usually in low-light, high-contrast environments, so the appeal of the A7s on other fronts is obvious.) There are a boatload of questions about the still-unreleased A7s, but in terms of dof, does my thinking make sense? Thanks.
