    Yup, thats what makes it interesting, and results in an better forum.
    To be honest I usually only surf the forums in winter when its too dark, cold and wet. Yes I admit I'm a fair weather photog and during winter I'm usually found doing this instead except with Belgian beer and Bombay mix supposedly building up my energy for the summer months.

    We had a shed load of snow a few weeks ago, and guess what, no camera! I had sold the X100 and was deciding to order the GX1, G3, or get the EP3. Now I'm fully armed with the GX1 and 25mm but now its good old Manchester grey at the weekends with glorious blue sky and sun during working day

    Actually I think it is the wealth of photos that truly inspire, that make this the best forum, not forgetting the generous folks who encourage us all to do better.

    A+

    Thanks Brian, this one was sent to me from Israel. Same year though as the J-3 you cleaned up for me last year. I think they make a good pair. Works well on the Panasonic G2. Haven't shot with it yet on the Contax.

    Argus 50mm F3.5 Cintar, converted to Nikon S-Mount, on the EP2 using an Amedeo adapter.

    Wide-Open.



    I suspect there are not many of these in use on a Nikon SP.

    Looks pretty good. I wonder what happened to my old C3 Matchmatic now! It was said that those Cintars were good lenses. Looks like they were right.

    Schneider Karat-Xenar 5cm F2.8, converted to Leica Mount, on the EP2.

    Wide-open.





    This Xenar is not a typical Tessar formula lens- it is a 5 element in 4 group design. It looks like Schneider split the front element of the Tessar into an air-spaced pair. Possibly why it looks sharper at F2.8 than the F2.8 Tessar of the period.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    You know, I had pretty much dismissed the Jupiter-8M, which I got as a body cap basically with my Nikon S, but it has some very smooth bokeh, and is sharper than I had realized. This one is from Zavod Arsenal. I'll be interested in seeing how well the KMZ version does.

    Re: Photographing your Bokeh

    I've found the KMZ J-8's are quite good, the better ones on par with the S-Mount Nikkor-H 5cm F2. I've used two 1970s J-8M's on Kiev-4's, they were not as good as the KMZ's.

    Summarit-M 5cm F1.5 on the EP2, at F2.



    At F1.5,



    reminds me of the Mandelbrot set.

    At F2 again.

    Wonderful colors everyone!

    Here is a bloom from a very early spring here in Canada. I couldn't fit my Sony 16mm E lens on my GH-2, so I took it with a Nex 5n

    I could have attached the reversed Sigma 30/2.8 DN on an m4/3rds cam but did not (NEX-7).

    I hope folks don't mistake me for posting here. Again, this could have been captured on an m4/3rds cam but it was a NEX-7.


    Untitled by Vivek Iyer, on Flickr

    NEX-7, Olympus pen F 40/1.4, Aspherical element

    The pen F 40/1.4 is one of the sharpest lenses I have for mirrorless cams. However when an aspherical element is added in its light path, this is the result.

    Paul, It is the rear most element from the Olympus 14-42 kitzoom. It is a moulded plastic aspheric and is easily scratched. That is the only worry.
