    Thanks a lot for the reviews. I disagree a little bit on the bokeh - personally I find it a tad distracting. It looks a lot like the Pen F 42mm's bokeh, and both lenses focuses very close. Some relationship in the optical designs here?

    It would be extremely helpful if you can test the lens under less than optimal lighting condition, as well as some portrait. I enjoy the reviews thoroughly!

    Personally I find it a little disconcerting too, sometimes its a bit "over the top" but felt I should spend some time on it as the f/0.95 aperture is obviously the key feature of the lens. Plus I've never used a lens this fast and its somewhat of a "novelty" for me to create pictures like that.

    Many of the pictures and the video are shot in very low light conditions.
    The four posted here:- Soundimageplus: Arrived today. are in very poor lighting, and the car shot is at night.

    Both Peter and Mike Kobal have some nice portraits with the lens.
