    Mine is coming out today - I'm sitting on a treasure here. Dan, you have a knack in getting those backgrounds right in color and structure to suit the in-focus subject

    Wonderful

    Things are going beautifully in this thread! Outstanding bokeh shots!
    Dan, this Nokton of yours knocks me from my socks! Do I need one?

    Keith, I was on the look out for a Yashinon, very nice!

    And I love the Color Ennalyt shots, Klaus.

    I am getting homesick, already.

    I will be posting soon. Keep it up, gentlemen!

    Hi Keith,
    Fantastic capture! I love the smooth bokeh along the tree rings. It is a clever title. Best, Leica 77.

    YES!


    . . . . . I have been pleasantly surprised with this Voigtlander Nokton 40/1.4 lens. As others have commented it renders great colors, DOF, sharp, and wonderful bokeh!

    I bought it used with the Voigtlander metal hood and have no regrets.

    It is a keeper!



    . . . . . the problem is there are a lot of keepers out there!

    One side note on the Voigtlander Nokton Classic SC 40mm f1.4. This lens comes in two versions, the SC (single coat) and MC (multiple coat).

    This is what the comments are at the Camerquest Website.
    http://www.cameraquest.com/voigtlen.htm


    "Cosina introduced TWO versions of the 40/1.4 at Photokina 2004. The standard production version is the multi-coated Nokton Classic. The 40/1.4 S.C. stands for "Single Coated". Why you ask? Because there is more to photographic imagery than super sharpness and the best possible lens test results. Some Japanese photogs prefer the imagery of single coated lenses to multi-coated lenses, and so this limited edition version of 500 40/1.4 S.C. lenses. The first production run of the single coated 40/1.4 was a quick sell out in the Japanese home market. The 2nd production 40/1.4 SC lenses arrived 3/31/2005."

    and

    "Single Coat SC or Multi Coat MC versions. The SC is excellent for color while giving slightly more shadow detail for B/W. The MC version gives the maximum amount of flare prevention while giving slightly higher contrast in B/W but less shadow detail."


    Somewhere along the way I read in a user thread that the SC model worked better with Black & White of the two models offered. I wanted a lens to shoot some B&W photos, so I went with the SC model. As it turns out I really like the bokeh as well.

    If someone out there has the MC model it would be great to post some shots for a some comparison of two.

    The Voigtlander also has a Nokton 35mm f1.4 that comes in SC & MC also. It is a bit more costly with an asking price of $579.00 vs $399.00 for the 40mm.


    . . . . . anyway it is nice to pass on that lenses disease that you have infected me with!

    Life is Grand!

    Hi Keith,
    Beautiful soft bokeh! As you say, we are all very pleased to share our great enthusiasm generated by old and new lenses (as well as "long-time" and new contributors!)

    I think mine is the multi coated version (nothing other than Nokton Classic in the lens description)
    This is the nearest image to yours that shows a highly structured bokeh. I blew out some areas so its a difficult image to work with. I have posted various versions here before.

    What a wonderful place to take bokehgraphs, I hope you have some more up your sleeve, maybe some water lillies?

    Looks like that tree has leaves that tends to excite the lens bokeh

    Lovely image - lets see a water lily

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    . . . . . . Busy with work and not much time to comment or contribute the past week. Nice to see some great bokehgraphs being posted.

    Yesterday had a chance to pick-up a 1953 Ernst Leitz GmbH Wetzlar ~ Summaron 3.5cm f3.5 lens. Very small lens and looks good on the GF1!


    Gladiolus

    Life is Grand!
