Sorry I don't remember off hand which lens this was, but it was the fast fifty you mentioned, or my Tamron 70 - 200mm f2.8...
Did briefly consider that math problem but way too late to be useful to you. Seemed to me that you could generate a math solution which would be fine on an optical bench but given the extremely narrow DOF it wouldn't be of much practical use to you in a hand held, distance estimating mode. Certainly no better than the bracketing you were already doing. Anyway, don't you just love those little outfits like KatzEye who provide neat technical solutions to these kinds of problems?
