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
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.
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
Most of all dont get infected by the "BBB" virus, buy what u need not what u want..IMO
No photographer is as good as the simplest camera
Dry Cabinet - Digi-Dry Cabinet 36L - $118 (NTUC Fairprice Extra)
Camera bag - Crumpler 5 / 6 million Dollar Bag
Filters - A Cheap Hoyu Filter for the Kit Lens
Flash - Not at the moment.
Lens - 50mm f1.4 (2nd hand)
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.
