BrokenCanon wrote: Some great answers here, but wanted to follow up with one more observation. It's not just the blur of bokeh, but the lens used to create this effect. Some lenses are more desirable with the bokeh than others. While other lenses tend to blur/distort the back ground. So I guess your question would depend on how much research you've done on a particular lens when wanting to use it for these effects. Also, one other thing, all devices have processors and these processors work at different speed very similar to your computer's processor speed. So if the processor is slow, the blur or the amount of image processing at a slower rate, the back ground and even foreground is going to have some distortion which could be viewed as blur instead of bokeh. Add this with an inferior lens, the image quality will suffer.
