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.

But you do have, what, 20 posts in this race?

As do you, and thus by your own logic YOU are obsessing?

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.

Sorry, that was my way of saying that Robin takes good pictures. You can, if you want, also go out and take two good pictures that demonstrate the difference.

When testing I think it's actually more important to take pictures that demonstrate the thing being tested.  You want to demonstrate resolution?  Shoot resolution charts -- not peppers.  You want to demonstrate bokeh?  Shoot a scene with clear foreground/background separation....

LOL

Do we still LOL?

Better to LOL than be the butt of it.
