Heya,

It's a matter of opinion.

He'd stroke out if he shot with a Helios.

Very best,

Helios has a unique look to it :)
Yes, it's solely an opinion.

Some people really don't care for the bokeh on zeiss lenses and I think it's beautiful... to each their own.

why dont you just open up the s50art thread and look for yourself. Take away the exif or manually switch the 50art to read Canon 50 1.2 and watch people praise the 50art thinking its the canon

Where's "the" thread, there are so much treads over here of the 50 Art.
I didn't see any negative posts about the bokeh yet and not in lens reviews either
It's definitely higher quality glass then your purple 85 1.8 with dull colours and no contrast which i'll sell this weekend haha :-D

He's talking about the 50 arts sample thread in the lens sample forum (its the sub forum of this one). Simple to find, just go to the sample forum, search "50" then find the 50 art thread in the results.

I'd bet you could take pictures with a 40 2.8 and tell people it was a 50L and more than half the people would believe you if the EXIF said 50L. Might just have to say it was stepped down. But no doubts you could pass a 1.4 as 1.2. Might even be able to convince people the 1.8 was a 1.2.

Show me the photo. If the bokeh is too busy for you, then you need to step back and use a 85mm. No 50mm will help you.

Eddie is correct. This is just a matter of opinion. One man's nervous bokeh is another man's perfect blur. It doesn't matter. It's just an opinion. What's popular today might be frowned upon tomorrow. You don't have to let anyone affect your opinion. Your opinion is yours alone.
