Capable of exquisite detail coupled with a soft background.

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.

Looks more like "More cheese... NOW"

Some weekend legacy lens shooting - the cat doing her "More cheese please" look.
