Thanks for this.  I checked out your flickr pics before.  Good to know some of them that were shot wide open, out of focus areas generally look pretty good.

Thanks for the pics and info!

both lenses are very good and make a perfect package mounted on a NEX!

both are exceptionally sharp from wide open!

the 38mm has a very uniquel lively oof rendering which sometimes may disturb, sometimes may enhance an image too, but for the bokeh of the 40mm being more predictable and quiet and also for being faster I'd chose the 40mm.

coatings of Pen-F lenses generally may be a on the weak side, that causes related problems mostly with the wide angles but rarely with the 38 and 40mm

see the 1.4/40 mounted on my NEX5N:

and some pics taken wide open as requested: ( some of which are taken at high ISO and the IQ suffered accordingly )

see all the pisc taken with the 1.4/40, original sizes accessible, here

cheers, andreas
