These are great images that really show off the rendering of these lenses. The third image in the set has gorgeous bokeh.

I have the S.M.C. 55mm f/1.8 and I love it to bits. It flares easily, but renders a lot like your 50mm f/1.4. IMHO these lenses are among the best value legacy lenses out there, and are perfect for portraiture.
