I like the idea, but it's generally better to have at least the center of the flower in focus, which you can never do wide open. Unless you're doing a close up of a section of the petals, which requires a macro lens.  With center framed flower the eye goes to the center, and........ Yes, you get lovely bokeh wide open, but you have to balance that with other concerns.  IMO none of the 85mm lenses are well suited for shots like this since the min focus distance is too long.

Profile is wrong, I've been on Dpreview since June 2006.
