That linked picture is nice, but it's not the only nice photography I've seen done with a 50mm. It's not enough to say "this unsharp lens is super special because it takes nice low-resolution pictures with good bokeh." Lots of cheap lenses do that.

You may have missed the point. Lloyd does not produce many interesting pictures on his site. They seem to be rather technically oriented landscape shots, photos of his bikes and backyard, etc. Now my purpose is not to lambast DigLloyd at all, but the irony of his 58mm review is that the photos of his daugter are very endearing/lovely shots, which is unusual, and despite this, it turns out he doen't like the lens - GO FIGURE.
