Robin Wong is this inconsistent?
In reply to TonyinJapan, 9 months ago

I love reading his blog and do think he seems very honest and seems happy to reply etc.

However I did notice something which doesnt appear to be consistent and this could be a genuine error.

If you look here Robin talks about the 20mm f1.7

http://robinwong.blogspot.co.uk/2011/11/panasonic-lumix-20mm-f17-pancake-lens.html

And notice he says...

Even at 20mm, thanks to the F1.7 wide aperture, I can render very good bokeh. The bokeh is creamy, smooth and very desirable.

Great you think! big plus....

Then I noticed this... when talking about the newer 17mm f1.8.. http://robinwong.blogspot.co.uk/2012/11/olympus-mzuiko-17mm-f18-review-street.html

I find the out of focus rendering of the 17mm F1.8 to be very smooth, creamy and pleasing to look at. I remember complaining about the Panasonic 20mm F1.7 for having very harsh bokeh and distracting out of focus rendering, even at F1.7 widest open aperture. I am glad to see Olympus 17mm can create much more pleasing out of focus look in the image.

So if it is a simple error fair enough but does seem somewhat inconsistent...
