[Bf-committers] F-Stop

Hi all,

just noticed that there are currently 2 places where you can/need to set 
the F-Stop.

1. In the camera settings (was first only visible in cycles, but since 
viewport project it is also visible for blender renderer)
2. In the compositor defocus node.

The compositor defocus node does not work without having a camera setup 
as it reads the Distance from the camera. But still we need to set the 
F-Stop in the defocus node.

Is there a reason why these values have not been merged?

If not I would suggest to remove the F-stop field from the defocus node 
and read the value from the camera itself. But maybe we should ask the 

Jeroen & Monique.
