Can it produce good quality blur ? 2.8 seem quite high compared to my 50mm 1.4 (which is only very sharp at 2f), if it does, then it seem it good be a good len for outside too with wide 17mm.

Like any other lens, the background blur will depend on the focal length, the distance between subject and background and the distance to the subject. I find the bokeh acceptable but it is not one of the lens strong suits. I don't have any good examples to show as I mostly use this lens indoors with little subject to background distance.

When you get down to the nuts and bolts of photography, the results depend on the 'nut' behind the camera!
