How's the bokeh on the 16-35L mk1 on crop?

I have the chance to buy a used 16-35L mk 1 for about $690US.

I was thinking the 35mm end might be good for portraits on my 50D now and if I ever do make the jump to FF it would be a great landscape lens.

Does anyone have any examples of the bokeh produced by this lens - especially any portraiture.

thanks,

rob

The bokeh on a crop body is identical to that of a full frame body, what's different is the amount of DOF when the framing is the same

Yes. People seem to misunderstand the difference. The quality or creamy quality should be the same.

Got it, in retrospect I haven't really asked the question I meant to. I'm interested in the Bokeh produced by the lens but would like to see some nice shallow DOF shots on a crop camera that show this off. I hoep that makes more sense now
