    I was wondering if anyone has done a comparison for not close ups but environmental portraits where the subject is framed nearly full body against an infinite background. I'd like to see if it's worth 3x the cost for the Voigtlander over the Olympus to get the midrange isolation look.

    Perhaps not as sharply focused as I'd like, but it gives you an idea of the DoF. I like the FOV of this lens - the portrait shots are great, and yet shows some background to give context to the shot. I have another shot of flowers on this site with this lens that gives a better indication of the bokeh.
