Plus usually the quality of the blur is more important.

And that's where the 56 goes haywire. It's bokeh quality is subpar, with straight aperture blades to boot. Very busy and not smooth. The APD is a little better, but not by much.

If you compare it to the Nikon short portrait lenses (58 and both 85's) there is a big difference.

Fuji say (on aperture blades): "7 (rounded diaphragm opening)"
Although if they are straight it makes for better SunStars (with 14 points) so glass is 1/4 full...
