Unhappy Depth of field

Did someone found a good setting for depth of field in XSI 2.02?
It seems like i can't get good result with the accuracy.

Can someone help me?

i think there's no big difference between 201 and 202

in 201,first,i use expressions like
"ctr_dist_cam( )"
get the distance from cam to object i want focus,
the use custom mode,and set near /far focus,
far=near+(object size*2)
far+near= distance from cam to object /2

you can refer my post here

i create that render with D_O_F

that`s no right enough

@the use custom mode,and set near /far focus,
@far=near+(object size*2)
@far+near= distance from cam to object /2

maybe far=distance from camera + (object size)/2
near =distance from camera -(object size)/2

or distance from camera-far=-2(distance from camera-near)
