    use the smallest f number your lens can achive and zoom in as much as you can.
    if you really love having bokeh, buy a fast prime.
    a cheap and good one is the 50mm f1.8.

    Zoom has no relation to bokeh.. how is anyone going to zoom in with a 50mm prime?

    Dear Mongzter, do you realise that in an earlier thread "What is a bokeh!" post #14 will be of great help to you. Cos obviously you don't know what bokeh is in the first place.

    Finally please spare 5 mins and take part in these polls, Search feature and Spoonfeeding.

    Thank you!

    Zoom or tele DOES have an effect on bokeh.
    See here and here.

    The term then is Focal Length.

    Well I guess I was too hasty in saying zoom has no relation, for zoom does change focal length. However I feeeel it'll be better for newbies to gain full knowledge of what they ask (though sometimes the info explodes their brains) rather than receiving piecemeal/confusing answers because there is much more to bokeh than buying fast primes, large apertures and zooming in.
