I think the bokeh is very nice but subject isolation is still wanting. This is not the lens' fault but a consequence of the small sensor. Unfortunately you cant design your way out of this problem. m4/3 will always struggle in this regards compared to 35mm just as medium format will always perform better than the latter.

Interesting... most of the working pros I know that shoot day in and day out for weddings or portraiture are using 5D Mark IVs

Cool. This lens will be great for taking pictures of homeless people in the subway, converting to black and white, maxing out the contrast in Lightroom, adding artificial vignetting, adding digital film grain, and then posting in the Leica forum.

Apparently the old German guy that hand polishes the aluminum cases for the TL now codes their jpeg processing engine. It looks terrible.

Did anyone bring the monkey into court and ask it its thoughts on the matter? That would have promptly ended the discussion of the monkey's "intellectual" property rights.

The reviews from back in the day were amazingly thorough pieces of work. Mr. Askey was seriously dedicated.

If you printed Zeiss on them and marked up the price by 200% I guarantee there would be a blog post about the superiority of the Zeiss coasters 3D Pop and micro-contrast.

I'm surprised this lens hasn't been updated yet. Seems like a no brainer to me. I remember shooting this same lens in the film days on my Elan 7e!

A recall and delay is the best way to celebrate a 100th anniversary.

Cheers Nikon!
