The distance and the aperture setting

The closest distance and the widest aperture does effect the results and do not give the best results according to my testing. From your post I read that your were 2 feet away from the subject with the 50mm lens shooting wide open. moving to normal using distance for your portraits and stopping down a stop may change your results. I use it usually around f/2 so I did the test at f/2 and the results were different compared to ones shot at f/1.4. Once you get to sharper aperture settings (few stops stopped down) the results don't vary any more even when used on zoom lenses.
