Yep, it's a beautiful lens to shoot wide open. I only wish...

...the AF were as fast as my old 50/1.4 AFD, which is a much more responsive lens in exchange for not-as-nice IQ at full aperture.

Bought this lens not long ago and have now been trying to explore its "wide open" capabilities.

I am very happy - also because the lens is small and therefore makes it easier to take the D700 in more trips (I am really trying to get away from heavy gear)

Any comments welcome

recent one: I was in our living room and couldn't stop thinking about "The Graduate" when I saw what I could frame ... :-)... of course with a big smile

The next were some attempts at starting portrait...

(no tripod here --- was only some dim light - he was playing near the sea at night)

This little girl had a beautiful face and wanted to be photographed... I had to show her (and his father) every picture I took
