I personally do not care for the 50mm bokeh

occasionally it looks nice but a lot of times it looks to me unpleasant and disturbing. I find the limiteds that I've used to be much nice that other lenses. This with the exception of the 21mm which can be very nice but also sometimes different. This is of course my very personal opinion. I actually also like the Sigma 17-70mm bokeh

Sorry for the bump, but I just got a new Sigma 135-400 APO, and took 1 macro shot.
I fell in love with the bokeh from it

What do you guy's think

This lens is not designed for macro, but it sure seems to do a good job with them
