Indeed. It's a work in progress. I think I've got that shot from the same

So subtle I can't see them? :-) I don't know what it is either but I think
it's best thought of as sharp detail, soft tone and good bokeh. Different to
Leica which seems to have a general glow with detail cutting through. Whatever,
shots with this lens do have a really nice rendition of skin. I really wanted
the ear perfect.
