DOF behaving strangely (way too much!)

Hi,

I am working on a project with a layer put up in z-space. when i try to get really close, I can't keep the object in focus. it just blurs irrecognizably, even with the focus plane on spot!

Please see this clip to understand what's going on:

And these are my settings at the very point. (Sorry, I use a german version.)



What the heck is going on here?

What are the setting i.e. values I should check?

Anybody...?

Did I express myself clearly?

I assume I don't quite get the way a camera in AE works, since the blur remains even if I put the aperture to 0.5px!

There does seem to be some strange behavior when the focus distance is less than about 10-15% of the zoom. I'll try to spend a little more time later today with this and see if I can figure out what's going on.

Can you stay above that threshold?
