  8. Great portrait Ron, how far away were you?

    I ask because I am considering getting this lens as a "restaurant lens". Very little facial distortion in this shot, unlike when I try to capture this type of portrait with the Panny 20/1.7.
    I know I can back up and crop, but....also after the extra speed for very low light.
    Thanks, Tom

    A tale of two f-stops:
    Wide open, a bit soft, but look at that spot-on bokeh!

    f/2, slightly sharper, at the cost of a few ninja stars.

    This retired fisherman was an amazing character. A real advantage of this tiny lens/camera combination is its total lack of intimidation.

    I'm loving this lens. The speed it gives makes it unbeatable at night.
