    Thanks Raf. I usually call it my Italian tilt adapter. It is made by Adriano Lolli at COMA.

    A few of us have these around here - works well. Mine is m4/3 - M42.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    The quality of the stuff here continues to amaze me - makes my day
    Nice to see one again from Klaus

    This one is taken with an Isco Westromat 1.9/50 with my Coma tilt adapter

    Taken last year - we don't have any ivy, hostas, or much other stuff yet - just lots of rain and no sun. At least we don't have snow as they have had in Western Canada over the past couple of days. Election day tomorrow - starting to look for my passport and put my affairs in order. Need to find me some flowers

    Beautiful shot Michiel!! I love the Bokeh this lens makes. I've been close to clicking the buy button a couple of times on ebay for this lens. Still might! All of your flower shots have been great.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Thanks you Mike. Much appreciated.
    I am sure the Trioplan can be useful for your work. I waited too (long) before I bought one, just because I didn't want to pay at Ebay level.
    May be you run into one when you are in Europe.

    One from yesterday.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Yet another vintage camera and lens combo came to my home.
    This time, a Exa 1a with a Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 35/2.8.
    The Flektogon is the so called "Macro" version, that focusses down to 18cm,
    but I have the impression that it focusses much closer on my adapter.
    I will have to check for infinity focus later on.

    Here's a first shot from the garden



    The lens seems rasor sharp, even fully open like here. Colour rendering is pleasing to me, and the bokeh soft and sweet.

    There is exactly nothing wrong with that lens, i think it is even better then the 2.4.
    I have that lens too and it is razor sharp and the focus is really close.

    Cabinetspace is going to be a problem, Raf

    You have a reasonable Navitar dealer?

    Michiel
    Thank you Michiel. The Navitar is quite sharp wide open and can produce some unique bokeh. I realized that the B&W version I originally posted had been Photoshopped with a Topaz layer and so I edited it to show the original. I'll post the B&W on the B&W thread. I purchased my Navitar on ebay. I believe I payed about $150. It's very heavy and built like a tank

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Nice ones, Paul. Is that Takumar as sharp as your Carl Zeiss Jena lens?
    Just wondering.

    Here are two more with that V 1 lens.
    In my opinion it is not as good as my Vivitar Series1 Telemacro 70-210/3.5.
    But at least it is not as heavy.
    The first one is a close focus example.

    Just wondering.

    Here are two more with that V 1 lens.
    In my opinion it is not as good as my Vivitar Series1 Telemacro 70-210/3.5.
    But at least it is not as heavy.
    The first one is a close focus example.

    Thanks Michiel. I doubt the Pentax is as sharp as the CZ Jena although I've not run a side by side comparison test. I also have the Pentax SMC K version of this lens which has the same optical formula. Focusing on both is about as good as it gets and superior to the Jena and many other lenses.

    Your last two shots make that V1 zoom look pretty good.
