    Have to say that one is stunning. Such an interesting bokeh, and the black and white is wonderful

    Those look really great. I may have to have one of those. Have you formed any opinion as to which you like best?

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    That 12mm looks very nice.
    My daughter lent me her OM 1.8/50 and I had a go with it. High contrast lenses I've avoided with digital. My thinking was that they'd give less dynamic range, but I'm not so sure that this is correct, now. Anyway, I had to return this lens to my daughter and I thought so much of the files it produced that I bought one for my own use, not here yet. I didn't do many "bokeh type" images with it, but here are a few samples.

    Hey Paul... I would have a hard time picking between the two at this early stage in the game. I like the extra 2mm coverage that the 12mm offers and the edge in speed. The sharpness may be a touch better, perhaps, as well. But the 14mm is a fine performer and offers a very similar look and FOV for much less money. If the price isn't an issue, I'd say go for the 12. If the price is an issue, I'm sure the 14 will satisfy similarly. How's that for a not-very-helpful reply?

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    The price difference has made up my mine and I'll probably go with the 14mm. Thanks for your reply.

    @ Owen, love the last B.O.B. shot

    Paul... I think you'll be very happy with the performance of the 14mm... it's close enough to the 12mm for prime time!

    It always turned out to be you so I did not dare anymore.

    May be you can see some faces in the background of this one.

    Shot with the good old G1 because I lost my battery charger in Paris.
    (Why has every model a different battery, should be a law against it for ecological an client friendly reasons)

    @ Cindy; wonderfull scene and colours.

    @ Arie; nice ones and welcome. I thought another Dutchman, but half of our population seem to live in Canada including my sister and family

    Here are two with different lenses from me.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Some really nice lenses here, three of which I have
    Willabeast - the yellow daisy is great
    Cindy - really nice composition and color with the Jupiter 3
    Michiel - the Meyer Trioplan is still a strong favorite of mine - love the colors of the cone heads
    Owen - another super abstract
    Arie - love the bokeh in number 2

    This one is with a lens I haven't used for ages - the Wallensak 25mm, 1.5 (Oly E-PL1)

    Klaus - I was editing my post to correct "W-------k", and I lost my image.

    So here is the image - and the spelling right off the lens is "Wollensak" I'm having lots of trouble with "o" and "a" in this name

    Hi, Michiel .. thanks for the warm welcome! Very unusual OOF rendering you are getting from your Meyer Trioplan .. very "painterly". I like it!

    You are correct, Michiel .. I am indeed a Dutchman but Canada has been my home for over 50 years now.

    Congrats Michiel! I hope it'll be a big success!!

    @Keith: Wollensak was a famous lens maker, unfortunately they had to give up in 1972.
    I have a few prototypes (even one made from meteorite glass!!) and test samples, great optics!

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    September 7th is the second birthday of "Photographing your Bokeh"

    As we did last year let's take the opportunity to reprise some of the great bokehgraphs in this thread since it started, even though it has caused me to go personally broke - - because I've bought oodles of legacy lenses that have to be stored, logged, dusted and sometimes used

    Let's keep it simple - post as many your favorite images from other posters over the next few days as you want.

    I'm off to choose mine

    Birthday Reprise

    Here is one of my favorites - from just a few posts earlier
    Michiel is one of our most active contibuters - and this image shows him (I assume it's him) even more active, in a very cubist pose. There is a lot of humor in the picture (I would love to see a square format blow up of him from this)
