that first butterfly shot is fantastic - the composition - the lighting - the colours - the bokeh - lovely - looks like its a great lens you've got there

I have a very ratty looking example of this lens that I got from Roy. It looks bad but the image quality is second only to my FA 35mm f2 and slightly better than the FA 50mm f1.4. I would use it more but only if I can get another manual focus screen ( my last one was in the DS that was stolen from my son last year )

I agree that all the images are good but the first butterfly shot is a standout, perfect.
