So your comment to Ricku was completely out of line and he had a valid counter to what you said.
Here's the original post from Ricku.
Looks like f/2.8 is the NEW f/1.8 for Canon. With higher ISOs being "grainless", f/1.8 lenses may not be necessary for general photography.Not if you don't like good bokeh.
Why is he attacking my Original post Did I say that there was anything wrong with people who like Shallow DOF No I just said for many people f/2.8 would work fine. Canon seems to think so too, because they are releasing many NEW f/2.8 lenses. So "Looks like f/2.8 is the NEW f/1.8 for Canon." is a true statement. What has bokeh got to do with it
