    And no-one, but no-one has commented on how interesting an aperature is. :):)

    This is a serious subject. Since I bought an expensive lens with lots of diaphragm blades (so that the aperature is more circular than with my other lenses)the bokeh in my shots has improved beyond measure. As a result my photos have done very much better in all sorts of ways. All down to the shape of a little hole.(cue for a smart remark I'm sure!) :D

    Yes but as far as the OP is concerned, we are trying to get the basics right and not delve into advanced topics like bokeh.

    Since when did anyone in this place stay on topic? :D
    Second may I refer you to the second post in this thread (yours I believe) that told the OP, in your usual concise, correct and inimitable style all he needed to know. :)

    Nevertheless I stand chastised and will never go off topic again :(

    You do have to watch for some lenses that appear to have things in focus, then out of focus, then in focus, then out of focus - it's a problem of hokey bokeh.

    It's my understanding that this only applies to left legs and the cure is to shake it all about.

    I've found the 'turn around' method to be quite useful.

    I am not chastising you at all. I thought you were the serious one with 200 quality posts so when you spokeh of bokeh, I didn't associate your response with a jokeh. ;)
