1 and 2 are fantastic, so full of life and joy, the bokeh works. I'm not as happy with the rings in the last ones. But looks like a good lens!

Those are nice samples of an excelent lens that is not so well considered.
Love the sharpness, but not so much the bokeh that is a bit harsh for my taste.
Anyway your shots are superb and show very well the potential of this lens.
Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Jes. Despite late PK it's tank like built and a pleasure to handle. Bokeh indeed is a bit harsh.
I regret not testing it while i still had 5DmkII. It might have came out smoother.
I tried shooting video with NEX and the harsh bokeh turned into cool one.

Nice portraits .A fine lens , it seems , even the bokeh is not on everyone's taste Wink But could work great if you crop and use that annular bokeh as abstract image .

Thank you for sharing these.
