    Yay, I have the same lens. In general I think the lens comes out a bit under-saturated and requies some PP, but the bokeh is amazing :D.

    I did not know tomatoes grow on trees :)

    Haha, they are not tomato.. I think they are meant to be orange (in colour). The lighting and LR (*ahem*) screwed up the colour a little.

    Hmmm - they look like persimmons to me, rather than oranges. Persimmons often stay on the tree deep into the autumn after the leaves have fallen, ripening slowly. They are delicious.

    Trivia bonus: I've been told that the Chinese name for tomato is "Western persimmon". (Or, at least, the name in Sichuan.) It helps to know that tomatoes were originally from the Americas, and first brought back to the Old World by Columbus.

    How is the F3.5 Celtic version of this lens? I see they sell cheap.
