Hi,

I'm not really a bokeh connoisseur, but having conceded that, I would say that the bokeh in this example setting is as one would probably predict - Ie First, the 110mm, 2. 50/1, 3. 56/1.2. The question is whether the difference is worth $10K for the GFX system.  Obviously that is a complex question and can't be answered by a single test.  They're all eminently usable, but it's only one experiment. There are potentially many others with different subject background set ups. And other metrics besides bokeh.  (Eg DR)  But if you're not making full use of medium format capabilities for larger print sizes, it's an open question....

Regards, Rod
