    Out of Focus background ya? As long u get a lens with Aperture F2.0 n below... Should be able to get it with any focal length...

    That's exactly it. You want to blur the background. It's called subject isolation via depth of field.

    Then you need to read up the basic..especially on depth of field and aperture values.
    no such thing as bokeh shot..wrong use of the word "bokeh" here.

    MHO is that you will want to get either the Sigma 30mm f1.4 DC or 50mm f1.4 DG. It's better to spend more for either one. On a crop sensor, this will be the two most useful focal lengths for full body and upper body shots respectively, based on the common shooting distances you will find at most events here in Singapore. But, if I had to pick one lens out of the many, it would be the 70-200 for me, based on my camera and personal framing preference.

    Following two are shot with a Sigma 85mm f1.4, stopped down to f2.0





    Next two are with a 70-200 f2.8 IS MkI, shot wide open

    Sorry new to photography
    use a 135/2 or 85/1.4 sure give you lots of "bokeh"

    Canon has the 50mm f/1.2L and 85mm f/1.2L. If that isn't good enough for you, there's the 200 f/2. Haha. Take your pick.

    On a budget? Then you cannot ask for too much, can you? 50mm f/1.8 is a common answer, although I don't think much of that lens.

    Now we also have cosplay lenses, nice addition to the wedding lenses, children birthday lenses, child birth lenses, street lenses, landscape lenses, bokeh lenses and not forgetting the XMM lenses.. It's time to rewrite the stickies.
    TS: Do yourself a favour and read about the basics of Depth of Field (e.g. here: Understanding Depth of Field in Photography) and which factors contribute here. Subject isolation is a fundamental technique and does not require special lenses. Instead of looking for the magic lens you should work within your budget and use basic skills. Your wallet will be very grateful for that.

    *btw despite earlier saying that 50mm may be too tight, I manage to take 1 shot using it, (a combination of 50mm f1.8 + flash)*


    You need a good 3-4m away from the cosplayer to get this shot.
    I agree with you.. 50mm on 1.5crop is tight but totally possible. It was what I had to work with anyway.
    did a lot of full body shots with this lens. Really need lots of empty space..

    The choice of lens to use should be based on the angle of view that you want. The shorter the focal length the more background you will have. a nice 70-200 range zoom would be ideal

    True but u will NOT get good wide aperture like f/2.0 n below for such zoom lens. U can't get good Bokeh.
