Show your 56mm 2.0 Bokeh
9 months ago

All we see are 1.2 bokeh, but truth be told, very often I find 1.2 is too blurry. I like to retain some background in my pictures so that they have a context.

Now, bokeh at 1.2 is easy : the aperture is completely round. But when the lens is closed down to 2.0 or 2.8, what happens to the bokeh? What do the highlight look like in the background?

If you have such images, with the 56 1.2 at 2.0, I'd love to see them. Please leave the exif in your pictures.

My 50 years old 50mm 2.0 creates gorgeous bokeh at 2.0, but it is manual. Before splurging for an AF version, I'd like to know what to expect from it at 2.0 and 2.8. Thanks to anyone who can help!
