You might want to have your eyes checked because the f/1.4 pic clearly has a lot more background blur than the f/1.8 pic.

As I've mentioned before, I don't have a horse in this race. It's academic for me since I have the 25/.95 and between it and the 12-35 I'm more than happy with my 25mm options. But it's good to know that "real world" photos don't have trees in the background. LOL

Confirmation bias has it's grip on you. For someone who claims to have no horse in this perceived race, you sure are acting like that obnoxious fan in the cheap seats. Why do you see this as a race instead of another excellent option in the m4/3 world?

Completely infatuated with the "OMG"

I believe the psychological term you are looking for is "projection".

No, it's confirmation bias. You know, the tendency to interpret information in a way that confirms one's own bias.

I'm comparing the two lenses because the thread is about an article that compared the two lenses. Not exactly brain surgery, is it?

That sentence has no relationship to what he said.
