Hi all, I took some pictures today with these lens and just realized how bad its boke is. It really bothered me in the way it gives that ring-like look and doesn't look nice at all, let alone the shape of the aperture blade. My lens is the regular AF lens, not the D-type. The front and rear element looks excellent as far as I know. It has a little dust inside on one of the element. Would this affect how the boke appears on my pictures? Anybody has experience with this? As far as I know, the characteristic of boke is just inherent to each lens and it's not designed and just a byproduct of how the lens is designed. I don't remember anybody mentioning about the bad boke of this 35mm lens and I thought a nikkor wouldn't come with this kind of boke. Anybody wants to share his/her two cents? Thanks.
