Default DOF with a X3 zoom?

Can you get a decent DOP with a X3 zoom and a range of 28-114 mm?

Just wondering, still unsure which cam to get.

Thanks

You should be able to get a good depth of field at 3X. Make sure to set the aperture as high as possible for the lighting situation.

"High aperture" is ambiguous. To maximise DoF possibilities you need the smallest possible aperture (hole through which the light passes). This means a high f stop number. Just to avoid any possibility of misunderstanding.
