    But back to the photos, the background for the bikini girl seems a little harsh and not silky smooth at f/2.2. Is the only way to push the background much further back like the other Classical Beauty shot? Or will pushing it down to f/1.4 help?
    btw, thanks for sharing now.... and later too, Warren
    Light coming through leaves is not a good background for bokeh. Opening up to F1.4 will help somewhat but still won't be satisfactory. Actually I was more keen to get the shot, so just went with a safer F stop. It is quite difficult to get it right with a 50mm at F1.4 at this distance. Actually I think F2.8 would have been better.

    Will post a few more photos later.......

    Even 55/1.2 won't do any better for the bokeh at half body or full body focus distances.
    At distances more than head to chest shots for a 50mm, the 'smudges' of OOF areas will appear smaller, so the bokeh will never be as 'creamy' as when the lens is focused nearer and the OOF smudges will appear larger and very inter-lapping.

    For 1/2 body or full body, go for the 77ltd or fast 85mm or a longer FL fast lens. Working distance will increase of course.
