What is good bokeh?
Good Bokeh means a background without any hard edges or sharpness. Nothing in the background should distract the audience or viewer. The blurry area should have circles of light that are round and smooth. Lines that are out-of-focus should be blurred and the points that intersect should blur into each other.
Is bokeh better on full frame?
While full frame will always win the bokeh battle, you can still use other methods to increase the bokeh in your images on the Fuji system. Minimizing camera-to-subject distance and maximizing subject-to-background distance will help you achieve buttery backgrounds.
Do I need a 50mm and 35mm lens?
What’s more, if you’ll be working in tight spaces, or conversely, want the ability to capture more of the scene in a single shot and have more of the background in focus, the 35mm is the way to go. On the other hand, if you want greater reach regarding focal length, a 50mm lens will serve you better.

What lens is good for blurred background?
Ideally, for a blurred background, you should use a lens that has at least an f/2.8 aperture available. Lower f-numbers will offer even more blur. A 50mm f/1.8 is even better, with several manufacturers offering options for less than $300. An f/1.4 is even blurrier, but these lenses sit at a much higher price point.

Can you get bokeh at f4?
Soft buttery smooth bokeh is produced by very wide apertures. A 600mm F4 lens will produce nice bokeh even at F4 due to the telephoto/compression effect of a 600mm lens. On shorter lenses F2. 8 might produce some nice bokeh, but F2, 1.8 and 1.4 produce even smoother bokeh.
