Yes I use modern AF lenses for certain things such as when I go on holidays and it is easier to reliably get images but for everyday shooting I just have more fun (I suppose it is more challenge?)...

Its odd isn't it! But I too have lenses that are perfectly good, sound, even nice lenses that I do not particularly like either because they look odd or because of their "haptics" (i.e. how they...

You are right of course. I misspoke - call it brain fade (courtesy of a late night posting). It was actually shot I think with another Soviet lens the Jupiter 8 50mm f2 as you suggested. My bad as...

This is one of my own images shot with a Helios 58mm f2 (optically a copy of a pre war Zeiss Biogon lens). I have to say that I love the rendering of these old Sonnar lenses - both the bokeh which is...

Yes, I must admit recently I too have been buying some old lenses - mainly 135mm lenses sold with the names of long defunct lens marques (mostly ones i have never heard of) on their name plate. I was...

You are right about the early Takumars. Lenses like the 55mm f2.2 (and f2) auto Takumar, the 85mm f1.8 auto Takumar, the 105mm f2.8 Auto Takumar and preset and the same for the early 135s are...

Kuuan, I would not say that I am specially or specifically looking for bubble/dohnut bokeh. But it is one "option" as I have written elsewhere in this thread. While many decry it (and it can be over...

Lynnb I do not have the collapsible version of this lens. I did own a beautiful close focus rigid version of the first Summicron but when I needed money to buy an M8 some years back I sold it (the...

I do have a 200mm Tak but its aperture is very very sluggish and I have never thought it worthwhile to have it CLA'd - it would be cheaper to buy a new one. But I recall it being sharp and I liked it...

They are nice images. Thanks. It has always been a dream to be able to get two lenses and put them together like that to make one perfect lens. I did try to buy another Canon 50mm f1.2 that had a...

A quick post before bed. I just found these interesting articles. The focus is on soap bubble bokeh and some alternative get it. (I am not especially fixated on that style of bokeh but its one...

I am interested in knowing more about the Trioplan(s) - they seem to go for a surprising amount of money online given they seem to be all made with what looks like a fairly soft alloy body. (Those I...

That is very nice I have to say. Very soft bokeh - I like it. I have one with a rather poorly handled front element (missing quite a bit of coating) that I shoot almost always stopped down. Even then...

Wow I like that. You know I NEVER would have thought of an Elmar for interesting bokeh - Summar yes but not the Elmar. Very nice effect.

I do actually and that's something I had forgotten about. I must get it out and try it for bokeh. I usually have shot it stopped down more. Thanks
