100mm f/2 Is Amazing (sharp and creamy smooth bokeh)

The 100mm f/2 is amazingly sharp wide open at f/2 and the bokeh is creamy smooth. Also the nine blade curved aperture yields nice bokeh even when shut down. It is a rare find when you come across one of these (mine is the only one I have ever seen).

You have to use one of these to appreciate what it has to offer. Using a lens of this focal length with an f/2 aperture gives the photographer creative control not found in other lenses of this focal length. It is great for portraits in low light.

Of all my legacy lenses this is the diamond jewel of the bunch. Others are nice but this one is really special.
