Re: Bokeh comparison between Sigma, Otus and Nikkor 58mm

Yeah and keep in mind the 58 is pretty sharp at f2, decent at 1.8, and you get all the creamy bokeh. A few of the lucky photographers who own the original Noct told me they mostly shoot at f2.

Also keep in mind the 58 renders much better on the D700/D3/s, D4/s/Df. If you shoot it on the D800 results can seem a bit fuzzy until after downsampling. I think half the folks who are dissatisfied with the 58 should take the time to downsample their shots. It make a world of difference.
