    This morning's excursion into my neighbor's floral bushes :D
    Some are cropped, some are not. Shot with aperture between f1.4 - 5.6

    They look nice but about 80% of them seem not critically focused ?

    Probably :)
    Still getting the grip, and really not easy to manual focus a 50/1.4 with no viewfinder
    On the second thought, even with DSLR I usually missed 80 % focus :D

    The one before last IS perfectly focused, and very nice. I had the Super Tak and found it really shone stopped down a notch at 1.8.

    Well, critically focused or not the bokeh is stunning in these shots. :)

    Yep, like a wise man once said: "Never ask your bokeh lens to be sharp, but ask if your sharp lens could do bokeh.. "
