With great bokeh who needs a subject?

A Nikon 50/1.4G on a D800 will comfortably outperform a Canon 50/1.2L on a 5DIII. What it won't do is provide the bokeh quality that people love that lens for.

You mean, those annoying portraits with only one eye in focus and the rest of the face in a blur? Something has gone wrong with photography since people started caring for things that are out of focus much more than for the subject itself. "Look at a great bokeh on my shot! Never mind mind that 90% of the subject is out of focus... and the rest has no sharpness wide open..."
