    No it's another Olympus Zuiko OM lens. The bokeh is nice, it just can't get as exaggerated as quickly as a 1.2 lens.

    To be honest the Bokeh I've seen with the FD 1.8 is actually nice. Maybe our opinions on what is nice bokeh differs.
    But the FD 1.8 is meant to have more pleasing bokeh than the EF 1.8

    Here is a nice read regarding bokeh. It's got a few lens listed too with ratings on how pleasing the bokeh is. Nothing about the sharpness of the lens though.

    Here's a quick take on my friend's RAW from the PhaseOne:
    [​IMG]

    Here's another RAW: Beach Shoot

    I've not even processed this one, but I was looking for something to post up here and thought it would be a good image for folks to play with (including myself).

    Give this one my usual B&W treatment. Hope you like!
    I've also realized that my B&W processing is essentially a super-dark, low-contrast Fuji Neopan 1600 emulation. Cool.

    Excellent work sir.. I wouldn't have used quite so much grain but it does work in a black metal album cover kinda way! :metal:

    Here's a RAW that (hopefully) showcases what a great sensor can do in terms of dynamic range.

    Man, that one was hard. I did two, colour and b&w. I tried to do something different, ended up having trouble and basically went for a cheap film look with each. :lol:

    With the colour, the blue slider was the toughest to work with, and holy shit the purple slider was crazy on the b&w one. :lol:

    Had a go at this one. I tried to get rid of the power lines but that was way too much hassle :lol:

    The blacks aren't super crushed; there's still some detail there - especially in the leg area.

    Of course. I was speaking colloquially. My blacks were destroyed but I might reconsider.

    Ah, I was confused-my brain is slightly fried from taking two grad courses (one of which is accelerated) while teaching full-time.

    Those all look awesome, guys. :yesway:

    I thought I crushed the blacks pretty hard in mine. Apparently not. :lol:

    I've got an hour to kill before class, so I'll have a go at this one, and pick one from Florida to post. :yesway:

    edit: Well, the link 404'd and I realized my Florida raws are on my external back at the house, so that was a bust. :lol:
