On my copy, the sweet range starts at f/4. But that's not to say it can't be used wide open.

f/2.8

I can't help you at the other end of the scale. It's great at f/11, but I've never used it above f/11.

I did some work on the left end of the table behind the subject. There was sunlight directly on it, and it was a blown highlight. Other then that, no. The blurred background is strictly caused by the lens.

i still think the 28-70 2.8 renders SKIN better than any, including the new 24-70 2.8...;-)))

I noticed the same thing. I thought it was my imagination.
Since I wanted one really bad, I thought that maybe my mind was convincing me in strange ways. :eek::biggrin:

Still looking for one.

I often shoot mine at f/2.8.

I love the color rendition

I actually prefer the one at f/4. but may just be a difference in subject.

Nicely done!
