Excuse me. WHAT?

I was just speculating that if this lens can replace faster 45mm f1.8 on the wide end:

  • in a GOOD light you can step away from the subject to e.g 60mm to make a nicer bokeh and good OIS will prevent the blur

-if the lens is sharp enough and has low CA
this might work

In a good light maybe yes, but otherwise any IS system can't stop a moving object, and going farther behind and zooming in will create same nice bokeh but the perspective will change.

Indeed you are right.
