Putting the various specifications to one side for a moment, In practical terms there are folk who appear to get nice portraits in low light and with a nice bokeh if that is required.

We all know that Gavin Howy is an Olympus ambassador , his portrait work is testament to what can be achieved .

for me, it’s risky to talk about aperture, T values , crop sensors etc . These are immutable facts but also can become a mental and creative barrier to pushing creative thinking . My reference point is always “how did they do that” for sure there is a large body of very impressive work out there for reference points. While ever you are looking at you feet, you can not see the horizon .
