Surprisingly good bokeh for 70-200 f4L is on the 6D, wide open at f4. Can't wait to try out my new 135L for portraits!



Canon 6D & 50D, nice set of lenses

The 70-200 is a fabulous lens for the price.  F/4 at 200mm and 6 feet from the subject is .79 inches.  That is a pretty small depth of field, and so bokeh is pretty nice.

People sometimes don't realize how small depth of field becomes with a telephoto even though the aperture doesn't seem all that large.  The depth of field is actually LARGER at that distance with the 85mm f/1.2L wide open.

Shot with the Canon 24-105 at f/8 on an 5D3. I was actually trying to achieve a good balance between the in- and out-of-focus areas, rather than maximum bokeh.

Here's one from the Tamron 24-70 VC.  It's a great travel option because of being to do shots like this along with the big landscape options and general reportage shooting.
