What is BOKEH ? Quality ...

IMO it does not mean just the depth of unsharp area behind ( and in front of) the. subject that is looking  clear and sharp. Originally bokeh meant the esthetically pleasant / soft/ creamy QUALITY  of the blurred area. Not just any blur.

The bokeh quality is very subjective.

IMO the bokeh quality is important - some lenses produce very restless unsharp background and there is also bokeh fringing that can spoil the images background. Some lenses have the right kind of bokeh (that can be used artistically)
