    Was that with extension tubes, closeup lenses, or neither???

    What sort of sharpening was applied here + how much?

    I am impressed with the quality of the OOF elements--esecially stopped down.
    I'd be interested to see how it handled OOF highlights in a shot like
    this...

    That's odd... neither FF nor IE will display this image on this page
    regardless of chosen size. Weird. Wild.

    Perhaps even more odd... FF would a little while ago, but now...an hour
    later...it won't.
    -Must be an error with Pbase.

    Nah, that image is just too fast for us -- I couldn't load it either.

    :)
    I've seen occasional blips with pbase like this before... Not sure why it
    happens...but this isn't the first time.

    Nope, it's not a Pbase error. Nobody else but Bret's images are
    having this problem. For some unknown reason his pictures
    occasionally get spiked. It's a real conundrum, but we've got some
    good people working on it. If Archie and Saul aren't able to figure
    it out on their own, Nero surely will.

    What? Never seen a totally black image from a digital camera before?
    ROTFL with this one!

    Trying again, I see the browsers render the web page with the image
    reservation, but time out waiting for that reservation to be filled with
    image data. Yes, all other images elsewhere render just fine, so
    there's something amiss with this particular image. I suppose it's not
    a stretch to imagine a data file getting corrupted on disk after it was
    originally written error-free. Who's Nero?

    Hmm. That Nero has no woof. For aspiring sleuths that haven't
    yet worried a clue, they could either google "archie saul nero" or
    try http://www.tbray.org/ongoing/When/200x/2003/05/19/Archie

    PBase must be having server troubles.
    It won't even let me re-upload the pic.

    So I uploaded it once again at this link:

    Is 50mm f8 1/100 sec any different with your f1.2 lens than if I would
    use the same settings on a slower lens? Would the faster lens give a
    greater dof?

    One thing I quickly learned is that the 50 f/1.2L doesn't focus as
    close as I'd like.
    So on that pic I had to use a small (12mm) extension tube.
    Without extension tubes it is difficult to fill the frame with
    anything except the largest butterflies.

    No, at f/8 it is unlikely that you could see much difference between
    the $1600 f/1.2L and the $70 f/1.8.

    The faster lens gives a smoother bokeh, especially with out of focus
    highlights. I'll post more examples showing this in a few days when
    I'm done with my testing.

    The representation of the OOF highlights you mentioned is the one area
    where the f/1.2L shines over the f/1.8 lens. The highlights are
    rendered in perfect circles with the f/1.2L, compared with the
    pentagonal shape of the f/1.8. This might be important for a wedding
    photographer or someone who makes his living shooting on the street.




    I'll try to post some examples later.

    It's a conspiracy! It would seem PBase isn't used to bokeh.
