Examples of good and bad bokeh

what does bad bokeh look like?

This is my subjective opinion of what is good and bad bokeh.

First a couple of shots with bad bokeh - notice the busy background with terrible looking highlights.

Kit lens bokeh

Sigma 18-200 bokeh (even decent for that lens:-)

And some shots with fairly nice bokeh.

First shot is nothing special but the bokeh saves it:

Minolta 85mm 1.4G

Minolta 100mm 2.8 Macro


Minolta 85mm 1.4G
