Thanks for confirming.
You have some nice pictures with this Nokton, but I must say I am not a big fan of the bokeh on those pictures with fruits. The out-of-focus rendering, on those, is too "heavy" for me. But the lens seems sharp, even in the corners, at f/1, which is really impressive.

The bokeh is in fact not "heavy" sui generis.It is PP that made it like this.

It's a fine lens, but perhaps touchy. I am thinking it does best with less detailed scenes, examples being interiors and cafes, streetlife, the use of dramatic light. Bokeh seems to have the potential to be tetchy in well lit, close focused front/back compositions, but of course it's very much a matter of personal taste.

The detail rendered inside the deep bokeh may be off-putting to some, like picking up another person's spectacles by mistake. It may be a little fussy regarding focus distances. The examples on the lens page for this lens seems to show this opinion, they show more uniform backgrounds:

It has a very different rendering to the 75/1.5, where some might be looking for similarities:

To me, the main drawback of the CV 50/1 Nokton isn't its rendering, which may not be technically perfect but adds a touch of character that I personally enjoy. The real issue is the significant amount of outward field curvature. This is especially noticeable since the center rendering is smooth, while off-axis elements appear sharper and more structured towards the edges. This effect becomes more pronounced when shooting subjects at mid-distance, around 2-2.5 meters. Most 50mm lenses exhibit some field curvature, so it's a common challenge with such fast lenses.
