Here is the spetacular highlight problem I am talking about.

This is rather common and something Jonas B had been talking about for some time.

Oops, sorry I missed out this reponse.

That is actually a wrong shot posted which did not reveal specular highlights at all. But you can see the bokeh rather harsh with the edges in the background bokeh.

Just updating a few shots on this lens. Just took it out for a spin and it is not a bad lens.

Your analysis is changing my thinking about this lens in fact. I have read a few reviews and I do find one thing in common.

Manual focusing is so much smoother on Ultron.

Despite my dislike on its background bokeh rendering most of the time, it is still a good tool when one is quite bored with the ordinary surroundings.

I'm sure it's a wonderful lens, giving great pleasure in use...

The ease of use of the DA 40mm (fast speed, sharp at all apertures, and discreet), make it more different to the Ultron than one might initially guess...
I'm not sure it's an excuse to have both though.. lol

(Manual focus isn't always discreet).
