Factors affecting bokeh

The number and shape of aperture blades
The arrangement of the lens aperture affects not so much the quality of the blur as the shape of the blur circles. In fact, so-called blurring circles rarely have a perfectly round shape.

The aperture in Nikon lenses has 7 or 9 lobes, in Canon lenses – 6, 7 or 8 (occasionally 9). The more petals there are, the more rounded the blurring disk looks, and an odd number of petals usually produces polygons that are more pleasing to the eye. Continue reading

The problem is that both good (from a photographic point of view) and bad light are not always obvious to the untrained eye. Continue reading
