Very nice Matt.
Which lens?
7Artisans 35mm f/1.2 II - "glowy"/dreamy wide open, but sharp enough to produce images like this ...

And contrary to its still charming predecessor, no *wildly* swirly, structured (outlined) bokeh - though also reduced sharpness in the center wide open; however, the second version sharpens up very nicely across the field by f/2.8 (f/2 in the center) whereas the first version shows acceptable sharpness only at f/5.6, and even then exhibits a clear mid-field dip. The two lenses are very, very different - I find it's well worth owning both.

For those who have read my complaint about the aperture ring: It's moving much more smoothly and freely now, though its size still puts me off somewhat, but it's certainly no deal breaker (never was - but now it's actually decently usable).
