Not shure which lens, but likely to be m-zoom 80-200mm.

M80-200/4.5

Nice.

I was just comparing a bunch of 200's today and was reminded how good that ol' SMC-M 80-200/4.5 lens is. My copy is as good as my hand-picked, best-of-three, DA 50-200 -- and a pleasure to use as is most of the old M-class glass.

Thank you both! That 28/2.8 is a nice little lens, so compact and I think pretty sharp though bokeh is only possible at close to minimum focus distance, it's very pleasant...

I for one hate bokeh. It is a serious camera design defect we have to live with for a long time because the camera lens does not see the world our eye sees. We see every where those extremely poor photos which cannot bring the entire tiny subject into focus while leaving the surrounding objects half-blurred. Theunartist's photo #2599 is a demonstration of a clever use of bokeh: the subject is clear and the background is totally blurred to un-recognizable shape.

Thanks for the feedback, but I do not think it's possible for the human eye to focus on several different planes concurrently. I think the only camera one can use that may be able to achieve what you describe is a disposable film camera with a fixed aperture but these usually cannot take close up photos...

M 35/2.8

Here's one for you, I've tried to get as much as possible in focus by clever use of PP (Post Processing) and intuitive cropping... Enjoy!

there is a Canadian development in Video Cameras that solves the infinite DOF who knows maybe at some point it will become a consumer item capable of stills and video

Thanks, Rick. I am also an unartist and would never view an improperly composed and focused photo as a dreaming art. You did a great job by cropping out half-blurred area which was detracting , not isolating. When I use my 100mm lens, I would try to keep as far away from the subject as possible to get a proper DOF and then crop for higher magnification.

Strange (distracting?) bokeh with a wide-open M50 f/2: (there were some loose branches in the b/g of the first shot.)
