I'm growing very fond of the Petri 55mm/1.8 because of its bokeh.

f/2.8 or f/4

Throwing in another macro photo to this thread. Close focusing lenses have such narrow depths of field that almost everything is thrown out of focus when using them.

This was taken on a wonderful M42 Asahi Pentax Auto Bellows with a 135 Fujinon EP enlarging lens.

Lovely OOF with those flowers. The 58/1.4 is good for that.

I was browsing this thread, and, despite a litany of fantastic shots and exquisite lenses, I noticed one, rather glaring, absence. No mention of the Rikenon 55mm F1.4. This is absolutely a master of Bokeh, as it's razor thin DOF, slight (but not unpleasant) softness wide-open, and fantastic bokeh make for some very pleasing "painterly" and smooth images. Of course, I'm cheating a little bit, because I'm on film and the larger format gives me shallower DOF, but I still feel like the humble Rikenon needs some mention. My copy was in rather rough cosmetic shape when it arrived, but its Bokeh-Master status convinced me to spend a few hours removing 40+ years of grit, grime, and grease. The optics are very nice, and if you can deal with a HEAVY single-coated lens, it's well worth the 30$ or so they sell for.

In the second shot, almost the entire background was small, detailed bamboo leaves. The Rikenon blurred them together, and, on color film, would have given a very nice, vivid green.
