Respect! Excellent portrait
The e48 and e55 are identical by optical scheme
Thank you for nice comments. Appreciated.
your photos I saw from these thread along with others 50lux portrait push me over the edge. The lens is exceptional. Central sharpness at WO is really good.
beautiful! i found the bokeh from some of your previous shots at longer distances rather distracting, but i really like the focus transition here and there's none of those distractions.
Thanks for comments, Sebboh.
I took D700 with me last weekend to Oakland Zoo. and after the trip, I confirm this is became of my favorite 1.4 lens. maybe the focal length, maybe the price is decent for its performance, maybe the focus ring handling.....
The rendering for portrait is just to my taste. I don't feel it is exceptional for other use, but I bet it is has very good 10lp/mm and 20lp/mm performance at 1.4, which give a impression of sharp lens but not clinical for skin. It is one of the easiest manual lens I have tried as well. No haze and not much those ugly purple/green OFC plain I have with other fast glass.
It also has big circle bokeh start from center. "glow"??
As for long distance Boekh, still I don't have enough experience or samples to fully tell yet.
I don't know how to judge it compare to all other 50mm 1.4 lens. (with Nikon, I might never will be ) However, I can say it is the best 1.4 Glass I have owned for Portrait.
