My budget is about $300 to $500.. Is 50mm f1.4 about the range?
Equipment: D7000 - 18-55 - 55-200 - 50mm 1.8d - 30L Cabinet
There's a 50mm f1.2 going for less than 1k..? Where? looking for one!Originally Posted by yrh0413

Yeah.. I know. Manual focus right..? It's out of production or something right?Originally Posted by yrh0413
I thought they were talking about an auto focus lens..Originally Posted by spree86
Hunting for one.. If not I'm already set on the Pentax 50f1.2. I'm going backwards these days.. HeheheOriginally Posted by ZerocoolAstra
for $200, the 50/1.4 AIS will do the trick.

I seriously recommend you to read the basics of how to get an blurred background picture and understand the fundamentals knowledge on DOF and aperture FIRST, then think f1.2, f1.4, f1.8, f2 etc...
The term used is incorrect. There is no such thing as bokeh lens.
Bokeh is only the term used to refer to the quality of the out of focus (OOF) parts.
You are looking for a lens that can easily give shallow DOF.
The thing to get shallow DOF are :
Subject distance (D)
Bkgnd distance (BKD)
Focal length (FL)
Roughly their relationship is :
DOF = (A)(D)/(BKD)(FL)
