Hi there

This might help:
Set your DOF shader to 'Custom mode' and in the DOF properties put "ctr_dist_cam_int( Camera. )" in both Near/Far focus. This will give you a sharp focus where your camera interest is.
If you want to use a null to control the focus area replace the expression with: "ctr_dist_cam( my_null. )".
Then you can adjust the amount of blur with the "DOF Strength" slider.
Cheers

Alex.
