The Vintage Bokeh Polka 14 vintage lenses Compared

I made this video last night. It's a sampler of bokeh across 14 vintage lenses all at min focus at wide open and f5.6. all on my A7...t
*note:he breach lock wasnt engaged on the Canon FD lens so it's wide open in both shots

Thanks for posting this. It was very interesting.

Edited to add: That 28mm Vivitar Series 1 lens has a bit of the "soap bubble bokeh" wide open. You can see it in this video, too, starting at about the :19 mark.
