I don't know if you have seen few 50mm shots in my gallery -

Canon FD 50 f1.4 has ugly bokeh, but you should not mix the bokeh with the subject isolation abillity. Of course, you can get some nice smooth background with the lens in propper conditions.

I will make more 50mm tests in the future, there are many waiting for it, but I have to find the time.

Yes I have seen tests on your website and the shots at dpreview and I enjoy these very much. The Canon might have an ugly bokeh but then again, I think it depends on the background.. This one is done with the lens I haveat 2.8 I think - I can't complain much really but I can see on the right there's an area where the blur is kinda distracting. The distance to the background is not constant on this picture and the area which is farthest has a great blur imho. So in general it's not perfect but the overall boka is not that ugly, is it?
