Fabulous bw conversion, the stronger contrast makes the pears stand out very well. I like your shallow DoF! I should use that lens much more often...

Thanks, and yes, I've rather neglected this lens, but have recently been making a point of picking it up and using it for the shallow DoF. I can just get away with using it in daylight at f/1.4 without an ND filter with the fastest shutter and lowest ISO
