The samples are very good actualy. Great contrast, superb detail, Colors are great, Detail is good for the photos being shown. Bokeh too is very nice.

I have not seen the harsh bokeh samples..what I saw was very very decent bokeh for wide lens.

Would be nice if samples are linked when strong statements are made. That is of course if there are any bad samples to speak of.

Here is a little read for the authors above

My ultimate test for bokeh is always the same. A flower or similiar detail in focus with a busy background (grass or limbs and such) out of focus. Image 10 in the samples gallery at f2.2 is the most obvious example of what I call bad bokeh. Very harsh. In the previous thread I participated in that had wide aperture samples the bokeh looked the same.
