Is there any pentax lens with a swirly bokeh? or do i have to thread the less well treaded path of third party M42s...

And great shots everyone =) I'm hereby joining the club with my recently acquired 28mm Auto-image





And to everyone: I would like comments on the third picture especially. Does it work for you or is it just simply too soft?

The third pic works OK by me, even with slight softness. I don't think any Pentax has the swirly bokeh, as they tend to be well corrected (enough that some complain of harsh bokeh in some cases.)

Hi Andi,
The M42 path is well treaded by all who are on a budget
I think the swirly ones are those with large aperture. Much depends on the background subjects as well.

My suggestion on your 3rd pic, I think it'd work well in B&W like the earlier photo, coupled with greater contrast.

Cross posted, but these belong in the m42 club thread, I believe...

Same 'person', first two with the Russian Helios 44-M-4 58mm f/2, third with
the Vivitar/Kiron 28mm f/2.5 Auto Wide Angle:

Helios f/2 (wide-open)


Vivitar f/2.5 (wide-open):



Figurine magnification looks similar, but I was much closer to it with the
28mm

Hey that's Annie from Little einsteins!! Do you have "Rocket" ?
In any case, that's pretty nice bokeh.

Yes, of course! You may recognize the vehicle in the following accident scene:

I want into the club! Although if you'll have me, maybe not worth joining, right?

Mine are cross posted, from a while ago.

Yashinon DX 35mm f/2.8, K100D

The Yashinon DX's have the auto/manual switch, while the later DS and DS-M do not. (DS-M are the same as DS except multi coated.)

Great, beauty pic. Thanks

And difference between DX and DS? Only coated? Schame?

Steinback made me do it,
Seimar 35mm/2.8 on K100D, no PP but crop

The lens looks like Cosina, just another lens really, but not bad either.

Nick Siebers, because of you I recently bought a Sekor 50/2 (silver front ring), but it got lost in the mail! Both lenses went for the starting bid of one euro and packaging.

Best, Georg (the other)

Damn fine photo!


I'd misplaced this thread, thank you Georg for the resurrection.

estudleon - I haven't researched the lens formulas, so I don't know about that.

However, with the Yashinons:

DX - oldest M42, has the A/M switch
DS - newer, no A/M switch
DS-M - even newer, no A/M switch, multi coated

---

The Vivitar T4 21mm f/3.4 lens has its embarrassing moments, but can do well with film cameras. Fuji 400H, Pentax ES-II.




I have a couple of new M42 Vivitars that I've only used with film - as soon as I got the split screen installed on the K100D my daughter took off with it... I got it back 600 photos later...
