That looks like a pretty impressive DOF (and a great picture, btw), it seems like more than what I get with my Nikon 6T. Does anyone know which has a better DOF?

(sorry, I am not too knowledgeable about how all the optical stuff works)

Interesting consideration, Blinblue, for this nice shot by Stoney 79.

The question you pose should have a simple answer, although I am not in the optics as a science and I have a Nikon 6T since just yesterday.

The DCR250 is more than 3 times more powerful than 6T (10+ vs 2,9+ magnification) so when it is used in the range of magnification which the 6T provides at 12x zoom, i.e. in the 3x - 4x zoom, as is the case of Stoney 22mm picture above, the loss of DOF is minor (just because less zoom has been used, and the zoom is one of the factors which reduce the DOF).
This is another advantage of the Raynox lens vs the Nikon: used at mid zoom it is easier to obtain focus and more DOF then the 6T which has to be used at full tele to provide a good magnification (which means less DOF and more risk of blurs owing to the focal distance).
