Found my 'eye', and lost my mind. . . (un-methodical test of new lens)

Stop it, please!

Those are wonderful photos.

I rented that lens for a week and have been desperately trying to forget about it ever since.  I'm trying to convince myself that the much cheaper and more practical Olympus will be a better purchase for me as the CV is so expensive and lacking AF.  More importantly, using that lens made me afraid that I would develop really expensive tastes and where would that lead?

Truthfully, I loved that lens.  There is a world of difference between f.95 or even f1.2 and f1.8, but you have to see it to appreciate the difference.  Mostly I just loved its rendering characteristics, 'flaws' and all.

These photos are NOT helping me forget this lens.
