Indeed, but it's also an optically simple lens with less hard edged rendering

Using tripod and same lens, only changing filter, opens the possibilities for overlaying and adjusting opacity. There

and weaker filters, Nikon Soft 2 and Fotodiox Diffuser.
BTW, in my lengthy reply to Wayne, I hadn't found this simple example of filter and DoF.
"Organic" is an odd term for someone who had to calculate parameters to 6
significant figures in Pchem, but that is what I think. ;-)
When I took quantitative chem, we didn't have pocket calculators or computers. 3 places
via slide rule was it. 🙂
And yes, Organic is as useful a descriptor as any.
