I think there's no need to be that critical about depth of field.
You are just pushing the technology to the limits. The Tuborg car
is an extreme close-up. And the green train shot from an angle is
because it requires a lot of depth of field. It's no use to compare with
those pictures somebody else took. They just show the advantage of
scales in this case. I don't know whether other digital cameras have
smaller apertures available or whether an expensive digital SLR would
help in this case, but I think that's about as good as it gets with
current state of technology.
