Thanks. I also think the 1st pic has more class. The vignetting helps create the atmosphere. I know you will enjoy your new lens. While I had the Umbrella Girl set up I also took the same photo with the AF 135mm f2 wide open. While the photo is sharper and has nearly no vignetting, it does not have the appeal or the atmosphere that the f1.2 photo has. It has a more sterile look.
