I am absolutely LOVING the beautiful bokeh this lens produces. Not only is it a wonderful macro lens, but I am finding I pull it out more and more when I want to add that "special something" to the background of an image.

Great bokeh .... I think you'll find that all the other 'macro' lenses such as the Tamron 90 / Sigma 105 / 150 / 180 etc. all produce beautiful bokeh's too. Great for portraits or street shooting. As an aside so do long lenses (e.g. DA*300) when used for portraits - in fact some Pros use them for portraiture just for that reason.
