If you haven't seen smartphone camera makers are working hard to not only create very shallow DoF, but to also let you pick the focal point AFTER the picture is taken.

They can do neither one, and their simulations stink.

This will trickle up to the larger sensors too. And NO, at this moment you can NOT do it for EVERY situation, but it is only a matter of time.

It will NEVER (ever) work for a shot like this one:

There was a big thick fence mesh between me and the bird, because this was at the zoo. You need a real, large-aperture to be able to blur the foreground out and effectively see around all that mesh.

Easy. Too easy actually. All I need is to write a piece of logic to "blur fence"
