    Really nice Paul

    I have one snowdrop in my garden (still with a bit of snow) and spring is very late this year. It will be quite a few weeks until we reach where you are.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Some wildflowers I found this afternoon. Shot with the GH2 on the ground with a 90mm 2.5 Tokina macro lens at 4.5. The out of focus foreground is leaves and stuff on the ground in front of the lens. About 3 inches beyond the flowers is a shear drop of about 100 feet

    Type of bokeh I like - nice and smooth.

    Very nice John. That 45 produces sharp images and beautiful bokeh.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Nice ones Paul! Surprising sharpness.

    I'll join in with the rest of the nice flowers to celebrate spring with my new camera and lens. This lens was for a good reason on my wishlist, I think.
    Love the one press focus assist on the GH2 for mf work.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    @ John, Michiel & Klaus. Some very sweet images you have recently posted.

    Here a few I took on this misty morning. I continue to be amazed at the sharpness of my Vivitar wide open
    Paul

    Dogwood - Panasonic G1, Vivitar 70-210 2.8-3.5 (Komine), ISO 160, f3.5 @ 1/160 sec



    Dogwood - Panasonic G1, CZ Biogon 28mm f2.8. ISO 200, ~f5.0 @ 1/320 sec



    Azalea - Panasonic G1, Vivitar 70-210 2.8-3.5 (Komine), ISO 200, f3.5 @ 1/125 sec



    Tulip - Panasonic G1, Vivitar 70-210 2.8-3.5 (Komine), ISO 200, f3.5 @ 1/125 sec

    Michiel... that last image "Tulip" is really cool... the bokeh is outstanding.

    Turbines... I really like your last, Tulip, image as well! Very crisp.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Thanks Don and Paul, much appreciated.
    I have that nice Vivitar, too. One problem is it is to heavy for the camera if you do not support the lens.
    But lovely photo's.
    @ Klaus; sharp and smooth!

    Another with the Meyer Trioplan. Not a sharp lens but it has charism.

    That Trioplan is indeed special (I have it too ... somewhere). Ever tried that CZJ 4/135mm Sonnar?

    Don't have that one, only two CZJ 135/3.5, the black sonnar and the older zebra version.

    Some serious tulips

    Thanks, theflyer. This is a great forum. Make yourself at home .


    This thread is moving fast. Great work by all - I love seeing all the examples of different lenses.

    Michiel - love the Trioplan glow.

    Paul - great backlit dogwood with the Tamron, and the Vivitar wide open is impressive! Wonderful shot of the azaleas.

    Raf, lovely composition with the 14-45. I forgot how pleasing the OOF rendering can be with that lens.

    Klaus, beautiful tulips - I especially liked the first one.

    Jerry, gorgeous work with the Tokina!

    Hello Keith! Thank you

    Some time ago this thread went over 100.000 views. A big succes, so congrats to you!

    Hope spring will arrive soon in your place and you are behind the camera soon again.

    All the best, Michiel

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    @ Keith; I can't say enough; you've created a wonderful thread.

    @ Klaus, Michiel & Admin; Thank all of you for your compliments.

    @ Klaus & Michiel; The Trioplan bokeh is lovely and has a dreamy quality. The CZ 135 f4 appears to be sharper and its' bokeh is also very nice but to me not a dreamy as the Trioplan. Klaus, The Tulips are wonderful!

    @ Michiel; I support my Komine with a Manfrotto 293. It's a bit clunky but provides good support for the lens and body.

    @ Raf; Lovely results with the kit lens

    Michiel's posts from his Meyer-Optik Görlitz 100/2.8 caused a SLALS crisis for me (Sudden Lens Acquisition Lust Syndrome),
    so here come the first two from my Trioplan

    Nice ones, Raf!
    Don't mention my name at home.
    Hope you like it.
    It is one of those lenses with that special wild bokeh, I like.

    Thanks Klaus, now if you dust of your Trioplan also we can form a Trioplan trio.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Michiel that is beautiful! Lovely color, bokeh and composition. Your framing always enhances your images. Do you optically center your images or are the border proportions arbitrary? Did you create an action to quickly create your frames?

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Thank you, Paul.
    Mostly I try not to crop but frame with the camera. Lately I do some more framing in PS.
    (BTW not on this one)
    Yes I made an action in PS for frame and text, so I only have to fill in lens and title.
    Makes life easyer!

    Leaving home early in the morning can have advantages.
    Today, I was already 50 km on the road to a customer, when, during a brief pause, I could shoot this one :

    G1 with Meyer-Optik Trioplan 100/2.8


    Have a nice weekend,

    E-M1/GH2/G1 Full Spectrum & lots of lenses
