Apparently the Bigma can!
Did you flash this one Scott? I think the light is a little harsh...
But the bokeh is .... well .... kind of smooth.... hmmmm.

Yes, I used the onboard flash. I was shooting birds from a distance and needed just a bit of extra light since it was pretty overcast and dull. This shot was a boredom snap taken just off-hand, it surprised me when I got home and went through the day's shots.

A good result.
Great isolation of the subject with soft subdued backdrop.
Well done.
