@mawz, I had no idea the 50 1.8 rendered OOF areas so well. That lens looks quite nice for near focus too.
taran, note this is the relatively rare 'long-nose' 50/1.8 AI, not the very common 50/1.8 'pancake' design available as a Series E, AI-S, AF, AF-N and AF-D lens. The long-nose is IMHO optically superior to its successor (as is the 50/2 design that the long-nose 1.8 is derived from). My experience is the long-nose is sharper and has nicer bokeh than the pancake.
