    All the latest ones are top notch, Dan. This one's bokeh really intrigues me with the shapes and the colors

    Nice bokehs on these, Michiel. I looked this lens up and can't figure out the connection with Sigma and YS mounts. Which mount is this one?

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Hi thanks Keith, it is M42 mount and came with some other lenses. I red about the Sigma making also, although there are other Accuras which seem to point to other lensmakers.
    As with many of those lenses, like Soligor's for example, it is very hard to find out in which factory a certain lens was made.

    I was testing this one with some other 28mm lenses, which I bought cheaply, together with a Chinon 28/2.8 which looked impressive, but is worthless for wide open bokeh. No sharpness at all.

    Liked the Accura even more then the Vivitar 28/2 that day.
    Here is a sample from the Vivitar on that same cloudy day.
    (Now I look at it, it's not so bad )

    BTW we were almost posting simultanious, your Sima lens is great for suspicious photography.

    Thanks for your kind words Keith.

    Every time I use the Ernst Leitz GmbH Wetzlar - Elmar 9cm f4 the results are very pleasing. From a lens produced in 1954. I do love this little lens and I believe you have one in your collection. If you don't own one then go get one, you will not be disappointed.

    . . . . . this is a fun shot with the vibrant colors of the fire hydrant.

    The lone tree in the first shot a bit dark for me. The second shot with the hydrant included brings the scene to life.

    Michiel, I love the bokeh in the first shot with the Orange Flower, (Kniphofia?), and the soft blur and colors in the second shot is outstanding!

    I was walking in the backyard with the dogs and I came across this little swarm of bugs flying round and round. I was shooting with a tilt shift adapter on my camera which really made the background do some nice things.

    Which lens did you use?

    Thanks Leica77 and Keith.
    The lens I bought was the Pentax 50mm f1.4
    I think I need to get a wider lens as well, maybe a 28mm?

    . . . . . you nailed it Michiel! My first thought was fireworks (strange mind I know) . . . . . the image of the flowers appears to burst from the center, and I love the shades of green and straw, and the detail and the bokeh!

    Wonderful bokehgraph!

    Hi everyone, lovely shots here and it's nice to meet a thriving M4/3 community. Here's some of my stuff done on a GF1 with a reversed Panasonic 20/1.7:





    It's a beautiful little gem of a lens

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Radatax, vibrant colors and a lovely soft blur bokeh! Nicely done . . . . .


    . . . . . and the 20/1.7 is a wonderful lens!

    Keith, that leave has a nice texture and looks sharp as a knife!

    Love the narrow DOF and bokeh and color output from your Ricoh 50mm f2.8 Macro . . . . .
