Focal Length DOES NOT Change the Depth of Field

The question is, does 'focal length' actually change the depth of field?

Before we get any 'yes it does' or 'no it doesn't' responses, the best, most well written article I have found on this subject, should be read. You can read the article here but scroll down to the section titled CLARIFICATION: FOCAL LENGTH AND DEPTH OF FIELD:

So, those who believed that in photography that the focal length changed depth of field, you can now stand down. If you couldn't be bothered to read the article well, I've kindly reproduced the important section regarding this subject just for you:

So, as far as I am concerned, well done Cambridge in Colour for finally putting this to bed, case closed
