    All pics were shot wide open (f/1.2) and have been processed in LR. It's definitely going to take some practice to dial in and will probably be used only for specific applications (e.g. unique portraits), but I think it's going to be a fun lens to have in the quiver. Pretty soft wide open and definitely has the token glow around the highlights -- the bokeh is pretty interesting as well. I'm curious as to what others think.

    Seems sharp enough for its intended purpose. And that bokeh is unique. :)

    Agreed. Here's one I just took which seems a little more appropriate (using bounce flash):

    Oops, title says f/1.8 -- it's actually an f/1.2

    Yeah, it looks a little soft wide open and perhaps the focus wasn't nailed on on some ;)

    That last shot with the dog is brilliant :thumbup:

    Thanks for the kind words!
    As for PP tips, gosh, I'm not sure I have anything special to share -- I kinda just dink around with the sliders in LR until I like what I see. The main ones I used for these were probably: Exposure sliders, sharpen, crop, and post-crop vignetting.
