And I notice you offer no explanation for your statement, noted. And long post? I have seen far far longer.

Bokeh comes from the Japanese word boke. It became popular in the U.S. in the late 1990's when some photography magazine started using it to describe the quality of the out of focus areas of a picture.

If the out of focus areas look good you'd say it had good bokeh if the out of focus areas looked bad, you say the picture had bad bokeh or the lens produced bad bokeh.

It's all in the eye of the beholder. It's simply a descriptive term.

I, personally, always thought it sounded a little effeminate.
