First Date with the Spiratone 20mm f2.8

I purposely tried to exploit the bokeh at f2.8 on this one because that is one of the reasons I wanted this lens, I think it looks awesome and I know some don't agree.

Wow, that's some unique bokeh. Borderline very rough stained glass/hammered brass effect. Definitely can make for some unique photos.

Also, to hell with any naysayers. As an owner of swirly bokeh lenses like the helios 44-2 and the industar-2, I enjoy this. Obviously (And I'm sure you agree) this isn't your every day shooter, but it sure is fun for a different flavor.

Exactly! It cleans up a bit too once you stop it down, I'll try to post some of those shots too.
