I think the fact that a) she's wearing a white dress and b) the composition is slightly different is why you're seeing more of a cut-out look in the 50/S shot.

The thing for me is this - I've seen other shots from the OP with the 58 that display the strengths of that lens (OOF transitions, bokeh), but with this one, I see primarily the flaws of the 58, not the strengths.


I'm with you on this, Mike. I have seen much better examples from the OP with the 58. For me, the 58 shot looks very ordinary, very little to like, the 50 f1.8S looks better in comparison.
