Very soft but to my liking. f1.2 can do a lot of blurring even 1/8 stop from f1.4

Is that more A1.2? Quite interesting quality to it's bokeh. It's shots like that where the bokeh is as responsible as the subject for the image's appeal that can justify a purchase

Good luck on your exam!

Yeah, Kelly. Shots by A 50mm f1.2 - really thin shallow depth of field but quite fun to play with especially when everything is in dormancy in Melbourne.

The bokeh is quite low contrast at times but still more comparing to nokton Rendering. Still, it can create that dreamy look due to the shallow depth of field (just not ast much as Nokton)

Thanks for the good wish. I need all the luck I need!

runny colours

Thought I'd just share this shot here - admittedly, I missed the focus point on this pic I still have lotsa problems with the nokton at close focusing distances, made no easier on the k20d. But I kinda liked the effect it had on this shot.

The bokeh in this shot is quite interesting though - the flowers were waving about quite strongly in the breeze, which I thought contributed to the 'runny' bokeh. Taken at 1/4000 s, f1.4 of course.



James - all the best for the exams too!

Your word "runny" makes me think of something else.

I like the look nevertheless. The grass did turn out a little chalky but I like its effect in this shot. Somehow mosaic and powdery.


Thanks for the good wish. It is coming so soon! Time to take some benzodiazepine.

Great shots so far, congrats!
Here is one from me, an unusual lens for bokeh masters but I like it. Pentax A 70-210/4 at 210/4

Voigtlander 125mm Lanthar @ f2.8


Zeiss T*25mm Distagon @ f2.8


VL is smooth, yet sharp and defined. I'd call it articulated cream, heh. The Distagon has a lively (but not distracting) organic quality to it. Wide open and so close to the subject, the Distagon has a narrow depth of field which makes it highly selective. The VL holds sharpness to the bitter end and is hard to force chaos into its vibrant but gentle rendering. Very different looks, but I like both.
Those two shots are really cool. I liked them as soon as I saw them but I had to hunt for the focus point. This was good because I was looking at the bokeh first, which is what you want the viewer to do if I'm reading this thread right (I know it's mainly about which lens). Because of this back to front way of viewing the image the focus seemed a little soft. On subsequent viewings it became sharper, I guess because my eye didn't have to search for it, some kind of consequential optical illusion maybe.

Thank you for starting this awesome thread. I have had nothing to offer till now but I have learnt and seen an awful lot that I like. Thanks to everyone else who has contributed.

Gary

I have a picture to add as well, I quite like what the Sigma 105 macro gives. No PP.

Would this shot qualify as a picture that was purely bokeh?
Taken with Tamron 28-300 at 300 f6.3 and in camera flash.
