The lens has a rep for being "soft wide open". Compared to a 75 lux maybe it is, but check detail above. Does not look soft on my screen.

and if you stop down to F/5.6:

I use this often for events :)

This was not a bright day, expect more contrast with more sun :)

The lens is actually more rare than the 85/1.8, if production numbers are accurate. I bought this one for 500USD with some scratches on the front element, otherwise very clear glass.

It's built for a street fight. Or breaking and entering LOL

But.... it's 20 grams lighter than the 135/2.8 Elmarit!

Those look great. Raid- love seeing the pictures of the girls from a few years ago.

The Bokeh has the swirlies to it, definitely reminds me of the 5cm F1.5 Simlar.

You guys are making it hard on me!
