    and here a few more flower shots:

    Those are truly stunning

    It's the singer, not the song (but the song helps a little bit )

    +1!

    Love the three opening shots for the comparison . . . . .

    . . . . . then I take another look at all that follow and have to repeat what the comment from Keith, "truly stunning!"

    Beautiful photo/bokeh-graphs . . . . .

    Excellent! Can you provide any more details on the lens? I've never even heard of it!

    Thanks a lot guys!

    Here how these two lenses (45mm + 85mm) look like (they can be easily adapted to any camera mount!):



    They are pretty unknwon in Europe and USA, but can be found in Asia (I have a partner there).
    Still very rare esp. the 45mm version. I have two such sets just in case....

    Also for product shots very nice:

    P.S.: also good for "retro style" stills (the resolution here does not do these stills justice at all)

    The modern Kenko soft focus lens:



    A real old (approx. 1920's) soft focus lens (Spencer Portland):
