As you probably know, Curtis did a comparison between the f2, AIS and the QC. I think there was another one but I can't remember. His test was what got me interested in the QC in the first place. To my eye, it held it's own with the f2 with the latter maybe having just a tad smoother bokeh, but not by much. I'm VERY happy with the bokeh of my 50-135 at 135 and wide open, so this will be interesting. I'll be looking for your test as well.
Boy! I had to work AWFULLY hard to convince you to buy the Q.C. Leighton... Lovely first image. My guess is you'll quickly learn to love that lens. And Francesco, the Q has the same optical design but without the lens coatings that warranted the addition of a C to the name... I've not shot with that lens but my guess in normal light conditions it will be equally good. I like it in part because the lens is a bit bigger and handles so well. The AI-s is a nice lens but a bit small. That is the reason i prefer the 200 f/4 Q.C. over the AI-s at that focal length. With longer lenses it is nice to have a bit more bulk and weight. Good luck sorting it out. And, I'll look forward to your comparison with the 50-135 Leighton. This is how we all learn...
