    We call them "fast" (not "blurry" or "bokeh") for THE reason :))

    Yeah, show me a crisp, well-resolved image taken on the streets at 11.55pm with that cameraphone app and tell me it's as good as what my Nokton produces. :)

    I was being somewhat sarcastic here and referring to shallow depth of field, which is what drives most to buy fast lenses. I know that it's possible, but very time consuming, to blur background etc right now in Photoshop, but with new software you will ostensibly be able to select your plane of focus after the shot, introduce melting bokeh, and have just that one eyeball in sharp focus and all done without needing extensive Photoshop skills. You want to emulate a fast prime lens? We have an app for that.

    Yeah, sure. I sometimes wonder if I'm the only one who mainly buys fast lenses for that night vision thing.
