Canon or Nikon: lens-based decision
#81
Checking the popularity of the thread (which is way too long and at the same time off the track), I really can't believe this! There are very knowledgable members here but when it comes to fights like Nikon vs. Canon it always gets messy...



BC, you have a decent technical knowledge about digital phtography. How come you can say that Canon lenses generally have better bokeh than Nikon lenses? This is really unbelievable. Every lens has it's own characteristics and you know that the characteristics of bokeh depends on many criterias (not only the lens itself; but sensor format, lightness and colors etc...). "Smooth transitions" you say... This highly depends on the focusing distance and the distance from the focused point towards background. And within this focused and background distance, the creamy transition highly depends on where you put the OOF subject. The color tonality in the background also effects the smoother nice look. Apart from these, there are spherical aberations which may even differ for the same lens model from sample to sample. They have a great effect on smoothness also. Usually, lenses are not perfect, they're spherically under or over corrected. This means it is rare to find a lens with pleasent background showing the same performance in foreground. So, how could the statement of yours can be quantified and generalized and also can be considered as valuable in such a forum by showing some sample photos?



I don't know who wrote it but something like this was written above "thanks god different lenses have different characteristics in terms of bokeh"... Please live with this.
