    Yes, Klaus! Thank you and much appreciated!

    He is my nephew, Sean Calvin... here is another shot from the E-P1 + Mamiya 55 1.4 with tilt, the way the bokeh is rendered with the tilt makes it very interesting for me:

    Hey, stay with us and you will go places . We are in the good company of other goofy people like Einstein, Steve Jobs, Mick Jagger, Picasso . . . . and many others.

    Seriously, the thread was originated around the concept of the character and personality of lenses. Lots of stuff goes in here that posters have difficulty placing anywhere else.
    We are facing some tough times however, our original mandate is m4/3, but now a few other cameras can take legacy lenses we need to open up the scope a bit. Not sure how to do that.

    Thanks - hope you get inspired enough to post a goofy image

    Lovely Karl

    Need to know what the vintage 1900 two element lens is that was referenced in another thread. Is it the Protar?

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Karl?? Had you said "Hans", I guess that stereotype for Germans would have fit better... I'd rather prefer Klaus and I guess I'll stay with that one that I carry since 55 years now

    That vintage lens I discovered and that you did mention is a "Hypergon" with about 26mm focal length, so fits a Lumix very well. Unfortunately it is very sharp, so not much bokeh to expect.

    Guess that one would fit the "autumn" topic and previous image best...

    Klaus, forgive me. I had just come away from viewing a "scho" image (Carl) and my senility kicked in

    I rebuilt 2 Sonnars this weekend.



    1936 uncoated 5cm f1.5 CZJ Sonnar, wide-open on the EP-2.

    This lens had a rear element that was etched. Replaced it with that of a 1953 KMZ J-3, one that used German glass. Looks just as good on the M8.

    I agree that the rendering with the tilt lens is amazing.

    Funny that the chair at the back is also kinda in focus beside your nephew's eye.

    I love the tall grass in the Fall- another with the 1936 Carl Zeiss Jena 5cm f1.5, wide-open. This lens is coated, and no signs of ever having been opened.

    Nikki is a TEENAGER! And doing great. She enjoys having her picture taken.

    With a KMZ Jupiter-3, wide-open at f1.5 -on the M8-




    But not too big for the Playground.

    5cm f1.5 Sonnar "T", 1938, on the M9.

    Hi Brian, all these are great shots - the grass is wonderful in this high-key version!

    I'm happy to see Nikki having grown up to a pretty teenager!! Brought a BIG happy smile to my face!!

    That's a low-key version, taken with a Zeiss Jena 38mm Lamegon (Biogon design) originally used in a high resolution microreproduction system shot just a few hours ago in late evening sunlight ...

    Very special lighting in those grasses! The ones from Keith and Brian as well!

    Thanks guys! Great shots Keith, Willa, Michiel (still on vacation in beautiful Venice? Don't say "work" or I'll tip over...)

    @Thor: A well known "swirler" but also a good taking lens! [thanks for the color match - back at ya ]



    maybe we could start "color domino", so a succeding image should at least match two colors of the preceding one?

    Thor, love the bench image1

    Klaus, It was a bus trip with art students visiting some cultural highlights of which three in your country. The ZKM in Karlsruhe, the palace of Koning Ludwig in Herrenchiemsee and the Vitra designmuseum.
    Your last 2 images are

    Here is a shot made in a tunnel in Austria.

    Klaus- beautiful!

    This Nikkor-HC 5cm f2 in Leica mount was given to me, front element had heavy marks in it.



    I used a kit used to repair eye-glasses on it, "Dr. RX Eyeglass repair, As seen on TV".
