Anyone who could help me understand the concept of Distance Setting related to Depth of Field? Can someone give me a practical example: understand the lens setting, which part of the lens should i look at to set this, etc...

What with AF, zoom and minimalist designs, even a usable distance scale is almost a thing of the past.
In olden days, they would put a line either side of the focus position, labelled with an aperture like 8, 11, or 16 - but this really only applies to prime lenses - another rarity these days.
Is that what you mean?
Also, could you tell us a first name please?
