Re: Remeber, Sharpness is not everything !

I totally agree, one of my favourite lenses for rendering is my Sigma 24mm F1.8, sure i prefer only using it at close ranges but its absolutely wonderful for rendering and suites my creativeness perfectly. Its not super sharp, it score pretty poorly on photozone but its bokeh at close range is second to none! its silky smooth transition both to and from focus is impressive and it allows for a wonderful depth and perspective. I also unlike many play with mirror lenses with great success, you just need to know how to use them right and how to edit out a lot of their weaknesses.

EDIT ADD: As your points about some lenses being the sharpest or not, well like many without trying for ourselves we only have reviews to go on for a lenses performance and the price point to compare it to. There are some lenses that don't get my personal stamp of approval, however I'm willing to have my mind changed if it can be.
