My lens arrived today, so I did a few test shots with a D800E with different apertures. These images were converted to jpeg using Adobe Bridge with default settings except for jpeg quality which I set to 12 (maximum).

I like bokeh and color much better than 50mm f/1.4D or f/1.4G. But I was expecting it to be a little sharper at f/1.4 and f/2. I'm wondering if others are getting similar results.

Compare those images to Leica Summicron-R 50mm f/2 mounted on the same D800E using Leitax mount. These look slightly sharper.

Well this lens is built for "light-points", e.g. clean coma .. what about it at a full aperture?
