I was trying to explain in another thread how good a cellnphone can control the background. You don't need a fast lens anymore to get the separation like you used to Technology !

The separation is reminiscent of what you can get with a wide aperture.  There are differences between what the software does and what a wide angle lens does.  While an untrained eye may not be able to pick out the differences, the aesthetic quality of the result is not the same.

Of course, a fast lens not only gives you shallow depth of field, it lets in more light, allowing faster shutter speeds and/or better low light performance.   When software blurs the background, you don't get the faster shutter speeds associated with a "fast" lens.
