    Eye of the viewer I guess. I find the bokeh to be horrible. All those little OOF circles in most of the shots overpower the subjects IMO.It is not a lens I would want to use for detail stuff like flower shots.

    I don't disagree with you and you have to be careful with this kind of lens because it can very easily cause your eye to not even focus on the subject of the photo. However, if you use it right you can make the whole image the subject it can almost be like an oil painting. Again though, if done right. Niche tool for a specific artistic image.

    Check the age, think it does fairly well. But I also boosted the contrast and clarity on these.

    Agree. The last two shots posted above I find attractive. The single flower shots I dislike. I think its a lens that you have to be selective about using.

    Got the same feeling of distraction. This lens, if used right, can bring lots of joy.

    With that lens, if you want better looking bokeh, you have to stop it down at least 2 stops. A few older Leitz lenses also have "wild" bokeh, some have "bokeh swirl" wide open.

    Try a test of post 3 #1 image at all the f/stops....

    I can't seem to focus on whats in focus, for the bokeh. The first four almost make me car sick! lol
