Re: Funny how many people simply don't get the DP2M

"But then I am old enough to have started in photography when great depth of field was a goal." So right, Pete. Because as photography, when there is great depth of field, uniform focus, whatever we call it, there is an illusion of reality. I've done it with pinhole cameras, large size film, where the pinhole gives enough definition that you can question whether a lens was used. The goal of technique is that it disappears.

But, recently, bokeh has become a popular term. In fact, I think the best bokeh is produced from our rangefinder lenses or larrge format lenses with near circular apertures. Until recently, a lot of SLR lens out-of-focus areas were simply unflattering, jarring, terrible. But it will come back full-circle. And some new lenses pay attention to the aperture shape and out of focus rendering.
