    IQ are refer to the image quality, it has nothing to do to the IQ of the photographers.

    Bokeh are refer to the quality of the Out of focus area which a lens can produce when using shallow depth of field, usually pursuing bokeh blindly will cause piggy bank to broke.

    In photography, stops are also a unit used to quantify ratios of light or exposure, with one stop meaning a factor of two, or one-half. The one-stop unit is also known as the EV (exposure value) unit.

    You should stop by any of our friendly National Library to pick up a basic photography book and start reading.
