Great shots Attila... I love both, but especially the little bird, his (her?) gaze is so intense.

Guys, this is one of the very few non-Russian, non-German lenses that I am really in love with. And in these shots you can see why. The only limit is has, it has a very flat contrast. But in Photoshop you cure this in one second. And this is not always a limit: for portraits, it can be an advantage.

I also found this is a great lens except the "bokeh" I couldn't shoot creamy "bokeh" at all with this lens. We have one place in the zoo fully with this little wild birds, they are allow photographer to pretty close. Distance between us was little as 2 meters.

Have you ever tried the micro-nikkor 105/4 lens? Sharp as a tack with
great creamy bokeh! Same with the 55/3.5 micro-nikkor.

I tried them, not micro 105, Nikkor-P 105mm f/2.5 and Micro-Nikkor 55mm f/3.5 they have excellent "bokeh" yes.
