Subject: First shots with the Otus

The traditional open th box and shoot anything regardless of how stupid it is. I believe most of these were at 1.4. I borrowed my neighbors D600 since my D4 is out till tomorrow.

All I can say, it's amazing! I have owned the Noctilux, and all sorts of exotic glass. This Otus is the KING of bokeh!

It does not feel heavy at all. At least on the D600. The only thing I do not like so far is the stop at infinity. It makes that hard metal on metal bang when you reach the end of the rotation. However, it is the SMOOTHEST focusing lens I have ever felt.

Here are a few pics

Seems to have outstanding image characteristics!
No visible CA (that spoon looks like a potential CA Nighmare for most fast lenses at maximal aperture).
Sharp (of course)

Nice examples of Great Bokeh and transitions from in focus to out of focus elements.
(For some of us, it may well be worth twice the price of the Nikon 58 1.4).

I guess I need to start replenishing my lens funds!
