    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Good results and a nice conversion Brian! I have the very same lens, just use a Fastax-to-c-mount adapter that I got with my fastax lenses and that works quite well.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Thankyou, Klaus. These Fastax lenses used to be in the "$5 bin" at camera shows.

    The second one disassembled nicely and the internal haze is now gone. It will be in Leica mount soon, RF coupled using an LTM J-12 mount.

    Rain drops on my window
    Here is another one from my B&W tree series. Shot this yesterday on the way to the airport with my iPhone. No mojo yet...

    I love it, Mike. Don't know how you spot those nice silhouettes when you are in the car. I want to see what mojo does to the drops!

    Lovely big ones earlier, I missed them.

    At first I thought you were joking, Klaus! You don't know how good a picture like that makes us feel here in Eastern Canada (and this has to be one of our mildest winters yet....so far)

    Rain Streaks at 20,000 feet

    This was the view out the window at 20,000 feet. I did a series of these images focusing on the window instead of the distant clouds.

    Carl Zeiss Jena 5cm F3.5 Tessar "T", wide-open on the EP-2.



    This lens is newly converted to Nikon S-Mount using a mount left over from a Sonnar conversion, formerly Exakta mount. Very few Tessar formula lenses were made to be used on a Nikon RF.

    On the Olympus using an Amedeo Adapter.

    1937 uncoated "bright face" Tessar 5cm f3.5, Contax mount, Panasonic Lumix G2 using Kipon advanced adapter w/helicoid, ISO 100 1/800 at f5.6



    According to Harmut Thiele, this lens was manufactured and delivered for the Super-Nettel camera, but was actually used in a Contax RF mount.

    Deliberately enhanced spherical abberration, using a Lyman Alpha f1.1/90mm catoptric lens.



    Michiel, we had quite nice weather a while ago, so a lot of flowers were out, now at
    -15 degrees at night, they are all nearly gone...

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    Very nice Klaus, I would like to see a picture of the lens.

    This Post-War 5cm F3.5 Tessar "T" is more common, A much more common lens but few were made in Contax mount. This one is now in a Rigid Contax mount. The glass is much cleaner than the first one shown above, shimmed for Nikon S-Mount. I marked one with "N", this one with "C".

    Wide-Open on the EP2.



    I am thinking the Ground Hog is Right!





    My TTL viewer for setting the focus for the lens in the new mount.



    Next Stop; Contax IIIa.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    This is a nice conversion Brian and the results look good to me. As this is a "bokeh" thread about using lenses, I'd rather not show lens pictures, but here is a link to that lens (those lenses actually) and another shot:

    Konica 30mm F1.9, converted to C-Mount from a Konica "EYE" half-frame, on the EP2.

    Wide-open. I need to make an aperture mechanism for this lens.

    Wide open with that lens looks pretty darned good, I think. Maybe you don't need an aperture? (like the Pentax 110 lenses)

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    It's been a long time since I've posted anything in this thread. After I bought the GH2,
    I felt less the urge to shoot with my vintage lenses (except the Nikkor 300/2.8 for birding).
    I have no idea why.

    But today, I took my DKL-mount SK Retina Tele-Arton 85/4 for a walk, and I came home with these :

    "Not on the EP2 yet", but will be using the Leica to u43 adapter.

    Leitz Varob 5cm F3.5, Enlarger lens. Optically, I believe this lens is identical to the uncoated Elmar.





    Now in an RF-coupled focus mount. This lens is sharp across the full-range, out to infinity.

    1951 KMZ Jupiter-3, rear triplet was bad. Replaced using a 1957 rear triplet. So now it is a mixture of German and Russian glass, converted to Contax mount.

    on the Ep2 using an Amedeo adapter.






    Wide-Open at F1.5.

    Sometimes I stop down. I made a combination aperture/sun-shade for the Konica 30/1.9...Just in case.

    I like it better when bokeh is what you can't see rather than what you can see. I was lost wondering what was the subject in the photo?

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    A new lens is living in my cupboard since today !
    A Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 20/4, in Exakta mount

    Although the weather promised nothing good for photography, I took the lens to the garden and shot a few first pics.

    The image in the EVF is bright, colorful and contrasty, so focusing is easy.
    Lens focuses very close also : up to 0.5 ft (15 cm)

    Here's a first shot :

    Well, if it a Subject that you want...



    1935 CZJ Sonnar 5cm F1.5, wide-open on the EP2 using a Leica adapter. Lens converted from Contax mount to Leica screw mount.

    Wide-Open on the "full-frame camera"...



    Uncoated Sonnars fascinate me.

    Very nice J-9 image, reminds me to use it on the Amedeo adapter on the EP2. and more on the Contax. Lower contrast than the Nikkor-P 8.5cm f2.
