Recently, it has been reported that photon anti-bunching can be obtained via second-order interference of mutually incoherent weak lasers and heralding based on photon counting [Phys. Rev. A 92, 033855 (2015); Opt. Express 24, 19574 (2016)]. Here, we report theoretical analysis on the limits of manipulating conditional photon statistics via interference of weak lasers. We demonstrate explicitly that photon anti-bunching cannot be obtained in such a scheme.
