Another Oly 150mm image
These Oly Zuiko long focus lenses feel like they were designed for M4/3, which they almost were (1/2 frame image roughly the same size as the M4/3 sensor) - they are very small and easy to hand hold.
I try to shoot with the highest speed possible and I am trying now not to recompose the image when leaving magnified focus. I get it the best magnified focus I can and then just press the button.
I guess most people on this thread will already know about the newly announced Fuji x100.
Now bokehgraphers can use a rangefinder style camera without the need for an external EVF
Carl Meyer Videostigmat f1.0 1.5" (38mm), shot fully open... (there is a sep. thread for that high speed 1954 lens I just got)
Nice sunny day.

Thanks Keith, mine too!
Indeed a fun lens to use! Here more "bokelishous" of that f1.0 Videostigmat lens:
Thanks Jim, well I have portraits, but no allowance to show them, as my "model" does not want me to ... the lens certainly is not the reason Maybe I ask my grown up kids to pose for me ...
This is taken with my Sima 100mm, f2 soft focus lens
Another one from the Sima 100mm f2 Soft Focus Lens
More for the soft focus section.

What is this "special combination" ?
Remember that we are all friends, but in the end we will steal your stuff
These are lovely.
You want me to reveal all my secrets
Just plane simple a 3x tele converter with in this case a Pentacon 50/1.8
You loose on sharpness but you gain a lot on bokeh.
It does work really well for interesting bokeh.
This converter came with a lousy Steinheil Cassarit 50/2.8 standard lens, which is also very dirty inside. Can't get the front element off, to clean it.

I'm going to steal your stuff - as I have many times in the past. That bokeh behind the sedum is something to behold. As long as you keep trail blazing, us followers will boost the sales of used photo equipment across the globe.
Here is another from my Sima soft focus - these are my anniversary roses one week later
"White Roses Dying"
Hope you can see them - this is like a dirty old oil painting

Drinking a cup of thee after collecting an old box full a Ihagee Dresden stuff, manuals, old films, an ext. tube, filters, a little Zeiss Jena Proxar 2x28,5 lens (anyone who knows how I can make use of this close up lens?) and more stuff + a Komura 135/3.5 and an Accura 35/2.8 lens with nice hoods. Both lenses in good condition. 25-- One of my better days
This lens focusses as close as 20 cm.

G1 + Accura 35/2.8 @ 400 iso
The UPS man bought me a box after hours today - he said you always seem so enthusiastic to get your parcels ( I call him Santa Claus)
This time we have a Schacht Travegon 135/4.5 for $10 - but with a "frozen focus" - I need to get in there.
A mint Schacht 135/4.5 Albinar for $50, and a Steinheil Culminar 135/4.5 near mint in a wonderful leather case for $50
Now I have 135's coming out of my ears - need to slow down
I got also a Schacht 135/3.5 a black/zebra model. That Steinheil sounds interesting too.
There must be millions of 135's out there. BTW I red somewhere that those leather cases can stimulate the forming of fungus in a lens due to its animal substance.
I always leave them out because of this. Some of those cases are completly pulverised on the inside anyway.
So now I have a seperate collection of leather cases
isn't that a good subject for a bokehgraph ?
whose Exakta/µ4/3 adapter came in half an hour ago,
so lunchtime will go to shooting with that "monster" Enna Muenchen Tele-Ennalyt 400/4.5
that came in from France last week (@ 100 Euro, mint condition)
It was quite fortuitous to see a number of children blowing bubbles last weekend. "Bubbles Take One". G1 + IGW 50mm, f1,9.
"Bubbles Take Two". G1 + IGW 50mm, f1,9.
"Bubbles Take Three". G1 + IGW 50mm, f1,9.
Good find and lovely images; the soap bubbles combinded with the bokeh bubbles!
I am gonna steal this subject from you , if you don't mind
All the best,
The last new lens for this year
(I think so, my SWMBO orders so, but we all know better, don't we ....)
Rafael's FLAD #29, G1 with ENNA München Tele-Ennalyt 400/4.5
Very heavy lens, I'm about at the max of what my tripod can handle.
So, maybe it was the last lens, but, I need a new tripod
Nice pix everyone, some of these older lenses have got loads of character. I love the soft, swirly bokeh and sharp center from the Videostigmat.
Here's a shot from a Nikkor AIS 50/1.8 shot wide open on a GF1. Surprisingly it's not as sharp on the M4/3 body compared to an APS-C Nikon, certainly not as sharp as the Panasonic 20/1.7, and it also has a glow under certain kinds of lighting. It's pretty good for a small and fast tele though
This is a new lens for me: Kodak Cine Ektar 63mm, f2.0
This is wide open at 1/30s, iso100
Kodak Cine Ektar 63mm, f2.0
Same lens - this has some camera shake, but the bokeh is interesting
. . . . .a lot of wonderful bokehgraphs to view in the thread since I left for a road trip two weeks ago!
Look forward to having the time to review a little closer over the next few days!
