The rules involving getting really nice bokeh generally have to do with aperture blades; but there is much more than that. For example, fast apertures in regards to the focal length and the distance to the subject can also help determine what your final photo will look like and how nice the bokeh looks.
Oh right! And the larger the sensor, the more bokeh you’ll have at a given aperture and distance.
For what it’s worth though, despite APS-C sensors being seen as small, they’re still very capable with the right lenses. And even though bokeh isn’t the name of the game when it comes to getting really high quality images, it can help lead a viewer’s eyes in an image.
Combing through the site’s Reviews Index, we’ve compiled a number of lenses you’re bound to fall in love with. Now keep in mind, full frame camera lenses will also give you nice bokeh but these lenses were specifically designed with an APS-C sensor in mind.
