Hi all,

I know that using a prime lens is best for portraits, as it has wider aperture and therefore a narrow DOF, but will the kit lens on a d5100 be able to produce nice portraits? I am new to dslr`s and by nice I mean a clear focused face and a somehow blurry background. I don`t plan to become the master of bokeh with the kit lens, all I need is a clear difference between perspectives.

Many thanks!
