Yes, well known on the Alt board, but Tri Tran's example shots trigger a real appreciation for me and my close-in shooting style... both forward and backward OOF is very pleasing... I'm sure it comes at a price in sharpness, but looks like a great trade.
On FF you can focus without a chip, but AF confirmation is nice... trouble is that most chips are based on an f2.8 lens... don't know if this is updated by some of the current sources (alt people?).
Also, on FF, stop-down metering is not a big deal since you can MF focus to f5.6, so...Show more →
MH--there's programmable chips that will let you go from f1 all the way up. Don't have a thread link handy off the top of my head.

The rendering is great, though, and I like it at medium distances a bunch.
