I might get flamed for this, but...

What is the point of having an over 1K $ lens, f:0.95 and not being able to use it wide open for decent results? I also love fast primes, and thankfully my 20mm f:1.7 deliver pretty sharp images wide open. I do stop it down, but when I want to have more DOF, but for the mainstream of images I shoot wide open.

And don't tell me focusing, since with EVF, focusing at darker scenes is no longer an issue.

Besides, using a reduced size sensor, you need all the luminosity you can get in order to have decent bokeh, because shooting with a 25mm at f:2 we are really shooting with an equivalent DOF of a 50mm at f:4 in Full Frame.
