RVP100 with My FA Limited Lens and something about FA43

Those are RVP100 films just scanned. All of them were shot by FA Limited Lens on my LX, but I cannot remeber which one was shot by which lens. The only one I can tell is the last one, which was by FA 43/1.9.

I should mention this, FA 43 is always criticized for its bokeh and not sharp at wide open, however, in my picture shown, you will find the called "stereo-IQ" due to the perfect performance of the shadow part.

I can't fault the bokeh of the 43mm Ltd.

My 43 is my favorite lens by a wide mile. I was considering reworking my lens kit and replacing it with something wider to use as my low-light general purpose lens, but I just can't make myself seriously consider selling it. Hell, I can't even tell you what it is that I love about the pictures I take with it, but they are just amazing.

Beautiful shots, by the way. That third tulip shot has crazy-good color.

Where are the obligatory henryjing's "cute asian girl with camera" shots?

Just imho but bokehwise I can't tell which one is actually better between the shots here and FA 50 that I have. I have a similar set made with FA 50, and the bokeh is pretty standard as well. The difference is that on the focused part your FA43 seems to jump out a little more.
