What % of camera users say : OH ! Great Bokeh
May 18, 2012

I just purchased the Nikon 1.8g 85mm.
I have not received it yet.

In reading on making a decision, the main difference is Bokeh.

I have been taking pictures (Amateur) for 40 years and I do not stare at a blur background of a portrait and say "Great Bokeh".

I go way back to having my own darkroom and love what I can do today with digital processing, I still cannot believe the hours and money I spent on test prints.

Am I hitting a third rail here, or is the % of Bokeh fans in the single digits ?

Hopefully I will not get life threading posts.

When the difference between a 1.4 and a 1.8 is $1200.00, the person better be able to prove to a customer/wife that the bokeh is visible to the average naked eye.

Be kind, I am approaching 70 years of age !
