"Exactly" makes it sound as though you think Jon agrees with you! I can't speak for him but I suspect he would disagree. In my view his point is valid and is the explanation and you are wrong about the camera. Take an expensive camera, same lens, same zoom, same lighting, etc., you get the "bad almost-bokeh." As I suggested many posts ago, Troy said it, Jon said it, nothing to do with the sensor. XT/D1X/D3 whatever, doesn't matter.

Troy can be wrong about that lens being incapable of bokeh and yet right about the sensor.
