Focusing for Bokehs troubles with sel50f18
Mar 5, 2014

50mmf18 does help me a lot in low light, but not happy doing Bokehs, as low keepers

Not sure if this is all this lens is capable of doing Bokehs, but I have tough time focusing for Bokehs, I get only 1-2 out of 5 Bokeh images.

My kit lens 18-55 does better and keep 3 out 5 Bokeh images

Is there a focusing problem for Bokehs with sel50f18?

If so, what other lens, zoom or prime best fit for Bokeh,

f18 or f28 primes? I see 28/30/35mm not as easy as 50mm to get close for Bokehs. Am I right?

Pl provide suggestions to do nice Bokehs for Emount
