Optics Theory - This forum is aimed towards the TECHNICAL side of photographic OPTICS THEORY. There will be some overlap by camera/manufacturer, but this forum is for the heavy duty tech discussions. This is NOT the place to discuss a specific lens or lens line, do that in the appropriate forum. This is the forum to discuss optics or lenses in general, to learn about the tech behind the lenses and images. IF you have a question about a specific lens, post it in the forum about that type of camera, NOT HERE.

Using Lens Coatings to Enhance Bokeh

This is interesting. Canon has come up with a way to enhance bokeh through the use of lens coatings. From PetaPixel.

"Canon says Defocus Smoothing is a new vapor-deposited coating that’s added to the front and rear surfaces of one or more of the elements in the lens (Canon says the 85mm features coating on two elements). This coating “has the effect of gradually decreasing the transmission factor from the center to the periphery of the lens,” Canon says."

Looks like the same thing as an apodization filter like on the Fuji 56/1.2.
