    I've never been much of a Canon fan but I am finding that I quite like this lens (more so than any previous Canon 50/1.4 I've had).

    you should be able to figure it out...
    I'm not much of a fan of Canon bodies, but they've got some incredibly sweet lenses. As a Nikon shooter, I'd LOVE to have something like their 135 f2L. Nikon has an old 135 f2 DC that has it's own set of charms, but I think it's readily acknowledged among Nikon shooters that the Canon version is in another class and we keep waiting for Nikon to release something similar. That's got some lovely bokeh, with just a hint of the hexagonal in that upper right bokeh-ball...

    Yep, the bokeh is sweet. Interestingly, I picked up the lens with the intention of only doing BW with it but it also has really pleasing color. For some reason I recalled other FD lenses I have used having a somewhat cool look to them. Clearly I need to rethink that.
