Yes , at least to me . Try like F 5.6 or 8 .

I like DOF better than bokeh any way , but in shots like this people wonder what is so great about the sign , what am I missing . good Bokeh needs a reason , like a face , flower , car , something that draws interest .

Thanks, thisĀ particularĀ image is just an example that shows the ring-like bokeh I'm seeing pretty often. Not really trying for a keeper pic here. The leaves seems to really highlight it today.

There are of course many times you're going to want shallow depth of field and decent bokeh and I'm just hoping to ascertain whether what I'm getting from this lens is expected. I don't recall seeing this effect with other f2.8 lenses I've used in the past.
