    Wonderful work indeed Brian! Sonnars have a wonderful bokeh, sharp but not too much, I like them a lot.

    @Keith: thanks, very kind of you!

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Lovely shots with the Hektor, Klaus.
    I've checked EBay for that lens, but it's quite expensive, so it will have to wait

    Here's another autumnal shot with the Trioplan 100/2.8



    Have fun,

    Wonderful Raf! (Yes, that Hektor is a really rare lens, so it's expensive; found mine at a camera fair for much less)

    1938 Carl Zeiss Jena 5cm F1.5 Sonnar "T", converted to Leica Mount, wide-open on the M9. ISO 2500 setting.



    I'm a Sonnar fanatic. I have a coated Sonnar 5cm F1.5 that is even older than this one: 75 years old, and looks like it is from the test batch of coated lenses. Just picked up a Jupiter-3 focus mount to do the conversion to Leica mount. It will be a "convertible lens", move between original Contax RF and Leica mounts.

    Thank you Rafael. Have you posted a shot of your GH2 with the 300mm/2.8 attached? That must be quite a package.

    OK I am impressed. It is not what you would call "pocket able." However, your pheasant image is very nice.

    Anyone have a Kilfitt Makro-Kilar 90/2.8? That is the most unique bokeh I've ever seen.

    Do you have any samples to show what you say?

    Despite its exotic name, it is only a copy of the Zeiss Tessar. The 90/2.8 would cover >60mm. The center of an image projected by a Tessar is always very sharp.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh



    In this digital photography tutorial I discuss the technique of isolating the subject matter of your photograph using the focusing technique of bokeh. Bokeh is a Japanese word that roughly translates as the aesthetic quality of the blur. The technique uses depth of field to isolate a subject against a background that is out of focus. The subject matter is in sharp focus thereby emphasizing the subject while hinting at a sense of place without specificity.

    I often use this technique while photographing out of doors, especially when I want to isolate a flower or plant in an otherwise cluttered environment. Because I want to ‘see’ the subject as the main piece of the photograph, I use any one of several approaches available to me to capture the essence of the subject.
    Using Macro Rings

    One technique is to extend the placement of the lens relative to the image capture medium using extension tubes. The effect created by extending the lens relative to the ‘film’ is to absolutely isolate the subject against an otherwise blurred background while magnifying the subject to reveal hidden detail. I find using extension tubes and a long lens is ideal for picking up nuanced detail in the interior of flowers, when photographing insects (when they agree to sit still for you) and other subjects where exploded and enlarged detail provides a visual impact that is otherwise missing.

    When using macro rings, a tripod is an absolute requirement. The front of the lens is place quite close to the subject and your ability to hand hold the camera, focus and shoot is close to impossible. The steady nature of the tripod allows you to do all that is required to make a powerful, engaging image.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Yesterday I did some lens hacking, took a Wollensak 35/2 Raptar in Fastax mount and converted it to Contax RF mount using a J-12. Needed to bore out the threads a little, and set the Raptar to agree with the Contax RF. So- fast 35mm lens in Contax mount that can be used in a IIa and a IIIa.

    Used an Amedeo adapter and M-mu43 to try it out on the EP2.

    This lens reminds me of a Canon 35/2 in Leica Mount.

    At F2:




    At F4:





    Now I need to look for a J-12 in LTM to convert the other Raptar that i have.
