    This is a little more normal, that last one was a one off workshop and not my thing really.

    shot at f2.8 or so. This is such an amazing lens :)

    Nice shots David!
    I especially like the second. Makes my recent post from my SEL50 look plain by comparison. ;)

    The FD 85/1.8 is really an outstanding lens. It's sharp enough where it counts at f/1.8 with nice bokeh and absolutely spectacular stopped down a bit. Here are two recent shots stopped down a little, though it does extremely well at f/1.8 as well...just don't have those handy at the moment.

    Both on A7 II:

    @ f/4:
    morning_blossoms.

    @ f/8:
    ed_headshot.

    100% crop of above:

    Just got mine today. Quite sharp at f1.8 and very sharp from f2.8 onwards.
