    no, i quite like it. im saying it makes backgrounds turn to mush.

    I'd love to just own a 24, 58, and 105mm 1.4G. I think I could make due with that.

    the 58mm is the softest lens I own, but the way it renders is something special... sometimes when i put my 70-200 back on and shoot, it's almost TOO sharp and perfect -- it's hard to explain, but the 58mm has a more "art" feel to it's rendering, where the Tamron is "true" and would be better suited to studio work and not artsy fartsy stuff.

    Ahh gotcha.

    I'd probably skip the Nikon 58 1.4 because it's too pricy for me.

    But that Voigtlander 58 1.4...only $400!!

    no AF no care.


    i have an old Vivitar 25mm f/2.5 that's MF and while it has a neat render -- I can't MF worth crap and it becomes too much a chore.

    Blurred background is itself deceiving. We don't see it when we look at a subject with our eyes.
