    There is no such thing as 'good' or 'bad' Depth of Field. It is usually described as thin/narrow or large/deep.

    If you're talking about photos where the subject stands out from the background because the subject is sharp whilst the background is very blur, then you're referring to photography with thin DOF to isolate the subject.

    If all else is consistent (eg. focal length, camera--->subject distance) and you take 2 photos at f/1.8 and f/2.8, the f/1.8 photo will have a thinner DOF, so the background will be more blur than that taken at f/2.8
    Clear enough? HTH...
    YES SIR!!

    Don't so strict.

    i'm not strict

    It's better to learn the "proper" terms first, rather that ingrain the wrong terms in your head, and get people sniggering at you later on!

    I'm also long-time newbie !

    Well you can also get a shallow DOF from using a slow telephoto . the higher your focal length the shallower DOF even when i use 200mm f6.7 my DOF is shallower than my 50mm f1.4 ... thats is focus as close as the lens can . try learning more about photgraphy and DOF and you will know that any lens can give you bokeh. But the quality of bokeh still depends on the lens , generally the more aperture blades, the more smoother the bokeh

    As what I know,
    Body - Local warranty. No warranty if you buy in other country.
    Lens - International warranty regardless of where you buy.

    Don't know if anyone has suggested the TS to consider other things that are important yet, so i'll suggest some stuff.

    Dry Cabinet - (U may not want to get it but this is a must have. Dry box are the cheaper options)
    Camera bag - (Free one's are usually unglam if u know what i mean )
    Filters - (Multi Coated UV filter mainly to protect your lens)
    Flash - (Might not seem important, but trust me they work wonders)
    Lens - (Depends on your personal taste)

    Sometimes taking into consideration what lenses or equipment you want to have as future upgrades might help you decide on a camera body. As if u take nikon ur stuck with nikon and vice versa for all other brands. Even things like buying 2nd hand equipment, which can be found much more commonly.

    i'm not too sure on that.

    If u see this post, the User Moggie order it through the site in the post.
    He did manage to get an international warrenty. However, i am not too sure whether Emjay (the local distributor) would acknowledge it ornot.

    There's used to be a discussion on it but i can't remember where is the thread already, if you are able to buy from Japan at Yokobashi (hope is spell correctly), you may request for international warranty and they would change it for you.

    Anyway, easier to get the white one in SG. ^^ Also look nice

    Wow your going straight for the 50 1.4...
    Ever considered the Sigma 30 1.4?
    I'd actually recommend a bigger dry cabinet. I bought a 60L as my first dry cabinet, back then it seemed so big. But now abt 4 years later, its not big enough haha.
    If your going to put a cheap filter, then there's no point in having a filter. Putting a cheap filter is like buying a sports car and then pump in 92 Why not consider using this instead http://www.artworkfoto.com/mcuv.html
    Their reasonably priced and their multi coated.

    But I've read in CS that they reccomend getting the analogue type?
    The DHC ones are quite expensive.

    Not bad.
    Price is very reasonable.

    So if I want this lens can just purchase from the site?
    Or there are other places selling outside cheaper?
