Noobs should realize that you can get bokeh a couple of ways. With a wide-angle lens, you really need a large aperture. At 80mm or so, then getting close at f/4 can give pleasing bokeh.

thanks. when i started out I had the kit lens combined with 50/1.8 for a cheap prime to figure out what works best for your style and what you like shooting.
Then you will be able to have a sense for where your gear is limiting you and get the appropriate upgrades.
