Hi Shawn,

Yes the DoF would be the same as any lens with the same aperture. But the crop factor makes that lens less wide than on a full frame chip. To get the same angle of view you'd need a much wider lens, resulting in less shallow DoF. So although you're technically correct, in practical terms for the same field of view (and same aperture) you'll have a shallower DoF on a bigger chip.

Some 16mm lenses won't cover the full sensor, but it would be nice to have the option to use them.
