    In addition they had the 50mm Summicron that had a close focus ability with an attached set of goggles to correct the viewfinder view. It was called a dual range. In other words, rigid, meant it wasn't the close focusing or the collapsible version.

    Rigid 'cron (@f2) and 35 asph 'lux (@f1.8) at their respective close focusing distances. I love my rigid 'cron

    Don't know if was intended this way, but #1, in addition to be a great shot (her smile, posture, imagined conversation with vendor), the juxtaposition with the magazine title in the glass, lower RHS, yellow cover is erie as hell.

    Thanks Woody, it is a wonderful lens and more or less manages away my noctilust. It is a bear to manage but delivers such wonderful results on my film Ms as well.

    Hi Robmac,
    I missed your reply before...I had seen the top and bottom magazine covers (same magazine with 2 different covers - probably some test of what sells more) and liked them but the woman smiling with Chelsea Clinton's picture smiling back was divine intervention to make the shot.

    Re: Bokeh shots

    Last night we had family dinner at my cousin's new house. I was snapping away and my mother was not liking her shots at all....so what does a good daughter do....I got rid of any wrinkles and age spots and bokeh'd her. Perhaps she will get a chuckle from it.

    I do love my 50 lux....

    Your daughter is beautiful. I really like the way that her collar mimics the flowers. This is a really special image.

    Re: Bokeh shots

    Thank you Tim. I'm finding I use my rigid cron most of the time now. It's a whole lot of fun whereas my 1.4 ASPH is kind of a pain to use with its focusing issues. And as shown in this thread the early crons are quite sharp but also smooth.

    Re: Bokeh shots

    tough to find but I like the bokeh of the 50 lux pre-asph better than all of them. I sold my latest edition 50 lux asph about six months ago once i started using the pre-asph.

    Just love the way this lens draws. YMMV

    Re: Bokeh shots

    I struggled to make sense out of these roses and don't feel I've done a very good job. Still, there is some bokeh in the shot and so..... bump!

    Tim,
    How about cropping to concentrate more on the roses?

    That definitely helped! Thanks Guy. I'm always so reluctant to crop more than just a tiny bit. I need to get over that. You and Cindy saw it right away.

    Thanks!

    Re: Bokeh shots

    I actually prefer the building in, and like the sky in the original. I think the problem I had with the image is more the "busyness" of the roses at the lower right, so I cropped from there and added a border, got this:

    Re: Bokeh shots

    What's that old parable? 7 blind guys and the elephant? Ha. Nice version Jack.

    But I think the underlying deal (and this is what I was referring to when I said struggle) is that I saw something, but didn't really capture it. I have a dozen more angles of the roses and none of them really work for me. C'est La Vie! (apologies for my French).

    Thanks!

    Re: Bokeh shots

    With all the flower shots, I thought I would give the Noctilux a try at Macro. The wind was reasonable calm this evening and this was the best I could get hand held. I probably needed a focusing rail. In most of the images, I missed the focus. This is a Dianthus closeup using the Noctilux.
