Ray: The D is okay, but the G ED is a truely great lens! Yes, the G ED renders a more modern image, but it's a strong performer on all counts (except maybe vignetting - it's a bit much for my taste, but easily corrected in post). As for the D, well, if you can get it used for little money, there's nothing major to say against it, but it's really not as capable of uniform sharpness and high contrast as the G - and the latter does focus silently and reliably, too. But that doesn't answer your key question; I'll check on bokeh and get back to you (with example shots) - I have to do it that way simply because I've actually never shot the D on the D750 since I have other 35mm options (the Sigma Art as well as the G ED) that are fantastic performers. Actually, I think I'll include the Sigma in the comparison - should be interesting. I definitely like the versatility and size of the D lens, and for film, it's plenty sharp enough with, yes, very pleasing rendering. But again, I need to compare it directly to the G ED to be exact. As soon as SiJ is over ... until then, the D750 is out of boundsMatt, what's that 35mm F2 D like? From what I'm seeing on Flickr, whilst the G series lenses may be technically better, that D series lens appears to have a lovely unique film like rendering, I'm actually wondering whether to get that over the modern version. Or could I achieve exactly the same results in PP with the modern version?
