    Very nice and gorgeous bokeh Raf. I like that lens a lot but it's not so easy to find a good one.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    @ William, Lovely simple images! I Like your landscape photography. That THE PALOUSE IN SPRING serie is really beautiful and the rolling hills reminds me of Normandy.

    @ Rafael, isn't it a nice sharp lens and the close focussing ability of it is great.

    Here is one from one evening in the street.

    Great new images everyone.

    @Michiel; I sure like that 1.2L bokeh

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Very nice guys!

    Now something very different "UV bokeh" - a shot done in reflected ultraviolet light, which makes that white flower appear in that color, as it highly reflects UV. The foliage and BG does not, so they appear dark gray. This is a jpg directly from the (modified) camera, no PP.

    Thank you Michiel

    I am in the exploration mode with m4/3--experimenting with various unused lenses. I inherited three Rollei/Zeiss lenses in the late 1970's. This image was made with the 85mm:

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Yesterday, I received a "new" lens that I bought from Ebay.
    Another Carl Zeiss Jena lens, a Biometar 120/2.8, in Exa/Exakta mount.

    Here's two examples I shot this morning with the G1

    Lovely Rafael, this lens has been on my radar for a long time but I always had mixed feelings about it. This looks really nice! You see them mostly in Pentacon mount. I have the Biometar 80/2.8 and Sonnar 180/2.8 in Pentacon mount. Both have lovely quality too. But that Sonnar is so huge, you can't find your camerabody anymore.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Simon, I love your "Dandelion Head" ! Superb !!

    Thanks, Michiel. This Biometar 120/2.8 is indeed a big lens, but not as big as the Sonnar 180, I think. I would love to find also a Biometar 80, like you already own , but they are rather hard to find !

    No worry, I'm expecting delivery this week of another beauty/rarity that I bought during the weekend. Stay tuned !!!

    I know someone must have mentioned somewhere in this thread where one can get and adapter for the FL lens mount to my E-3. Would you mind telling me again.

    The announced new lens arrived.
    It's a Kilfitt Macro-Kilar 40/2.8 from the Liechtensteiner manufacturer Heinz Kilfitt Kamerabau Anstalt Vaduz.
    I bought it in a M42 mount, for which I already own an adapter.

    Here's a few pics from the first shoot !

    The Trioplan continues to amaze me. It produces contrasty images that are razor sharp and usually don't require much PP sharpening. For flowers it's often my first choice. It was definitely one of my best auction purchases.

    Marvelous images, everyone. The quality and consistency is amazing to me.

    This one is a little different, it is called "At Last" (in anticipation of a final end to our stinking winter and spring - and I'm saying this in June??, well almost)

    Thank you Tesselator and Keith.

    @ Tesselator; I really like the last ones you posted and your quick focusing skill on moving subjects always amazes me. That AF 35-70 2.8D looks really good.

    It's /alright/. It has a very good reputation - which is always good for resale value. The bokeh can be pretty annoying in some shots for sure! Stopped down a little it does have that crystal-clean look people pay the bucks for tho.

    BTW, that's not my focusing skills at work there. I preset the focus to about 1m and stuck the barrel 80cm out from the swarm, and then clicked... without even looking. I tried a bunch of different shutter speeds and even tried it with flash but that looked best IMO.

    May not be "focusing skills" but certainly a cool technique that captured an unusual image. Don't you just love how "experiments" turn out sometime?

    Keith, thank you so much. There are more good photos in this thread than I could possibly comment on. Great to see what people are up to!

    This one is nothing exceptional but I love the rendering nonetheless.

    Listen to my new album "The Drones" free on BandCamp. Visit my Flickr images, website, or blog. Cheers!

    Great stuff everyone!

    Keith - I love the ornamental tree. And Klaus, well done UV bokeh series.

    Spring is finally in full swing here in Ottawa. Here's one of my beautiful alternate-leaf dogwood (E-PL1 with a Steinheil Munchen Auto-D-Tele-Quinar 55/1.9):



    and another one with the same Quinar 55/1.9:
