This was the first real portrait test/shoot with the new lens. I am really impressed with the sharpness and clarity of this lens. The colors are great too, and having awesome detail is always a plus :) I love the soft background blur/shallow DOF in provides. I was actually hoping the bokeh would be better, but with the post below (B&W Kiss) I really like the bokeh in the top right corner, I think it is very decent for f/4. I am looking forward to shooting more portraits with this lens!
