1. I knew you meant depth of field.

2. Other than that, all good and accurate info here, but leaves out one very important thing - no matter how sharp the lens CAN be, you need to keep it in the optimal f/ stop range to maximize the sharpness. My 12-24 f/4 and 17-35 f/2.8 are both excellent Nikkor lenses, but they are sharpest in the range of f/8. This applies to all lenses, and has to do with how the light passes through the lens elements and the aperature blades. At the wide-open setting, you are using the outer fringes of the lens, and it is not as sharp. Stopped down to f/22, the light actually bends around the blades of the diaphram, and you lose sharpness here as well. Most lenses do best 1-2 stops on either side of f/8.

Technique is the single most important factor for sharp images.
