DOF is a function only of the focal lenght (and the distance to the object), so it has nothing to do with the film/sensor format.

Still nothing to do with the film format.
We usually use longer focals (e.g. 50 mm vs. 80 mm standard lens) on MF than on 135, possible its therefore you think DOF is shallower on MF.

Completly agree.
I know no product sold by Lomo that you could not get elsewhere cheaper, in better quality and even handier (I mention this one so nobody comes with the argument of simplicity) or if you are for the crap effect that too can be had cheaper.

What I think is dangerous is that more and more companies arise in the photographic market following the same recipy of selling heavily advertised crap for high prices.
Would FP3000B still be produced if people have bought it instead of the impossible films at double the price and a quarter of the quality?
I'm tired of reading how these new offers save film. I think they push quality products out of the market and in the end we will remain with crap worse than what Niepce cooked in his kitchen.

Get a box camera and any optician will mount you an eyeglass lens of the focal you desire.
