Re: There is no magical size/weight advantage

This is a very strange topic and strange discussion. I was always convinced, and still am, that the most important characteristic of the lens is FoV. This determines what camera can capture and what is on the picture. Now, ot of the sudden, there are people claiming that DoF is the key. I wonder why would that be? Surely this is some strange biased idea that is not supported by e.g. results of the photography contests. I wonder if there was one single win or failure because of bokeh quality, however I'm sure there there was plenty because of content and composition. And this is determined by FOV.
