Well, I'm still learning to use this lens in a proper way.
As portrait lens it works very well. Yesterday I tried it outside.

Some leafes at my favorite pond while driving home...




Sharp and creamy

At the same pond - a dragonfly and a damselfly...

It was a challenge to focus the small damselfly in the distance with the lens wide open. Only one of five pictures was in focus.
But I like the resulting bokeh.


The bigger dragonfly was no problem


Still learning

Wasn't it Uncle Frank who coined the name, Cream Machine? I still miss Uncle Frank on the cafe. I was so happy when I got my cream machine many years ago. It's still a favorite lens of mine.

Yes Terri, it was Uncle Frank...
By his advice and rating of the lens I bought the D instead of the G version.
And I got the impression I didn't do something wrong.

Uncle Frank, Rich Gibson and Rob Zijlstra were friends here at the Café I'm still missing, too.

Thank you
Klaus

I agree, I miss them all. They were wonderful Cafe friends.

It was Uncle Frank’s naming of this gem that 1st caught my attention, and soon afterwards, the brown truck was on its way to my house.

I met Frank once when he stopped in LA, great guy! He'd also call me on occasion and we'd have long winded conversations that'd last over an hour just talking about cameras and other random things.

He transitioned into mirrorless awhile back, he would be amazed by all the new stuff that's come out!
