p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Really fast 50 Bokeh


I thought I would start a thread with some images from fast 50mm lenses, such as the f1.2 and F1 lenses available. My only fast 50mm is the Noctilux, though some of the posts from the 50mm f1.2 Minolta lenses tempted me until the price went up on them

These two were shot today in bright overcast. I used a Noctilux wide open at f1.0. The images were converted by lightroom and resized 1200 wide and sharpened in Photoshop.

WOW! Really nice color, sharpness, and bokeh for a *really* fast 50. With a 50 like that you don't need another.

these are taken with a 55mm f/1.2 Zuiko...it's a real gem. I love it. It's on my camera most of the time if I dont need fast auto focusing.

Any more fast 50 bokeh to share? It doesn't have to be exactly 50mm. Any f1.2 or faster lens from 50-60mm.

You've probably already seen most of my samples with the Rokkor 58/1.2. There are tons of samples from the Rokkor in the Alt. Image thread, too.

I'll see if I can find time to shoot some new stuff to post, but here's my "flower girl", which several people seemed to like:

The Rokkor 58mm seems to hold the shapes of the objects in the background more than you would think a f1.2 lens would. It must focus a lot closer than a Noctilux. I could never get as close as in your flower shot.

Don't know the MFD off hand, but I should comment that the flower was actually quite huge, so it may appear closer than it really was.

On the Noctilux, the minimum focus is 1m.

More Oly 55/1.2. That bokeh gets to be really busy.

.6m on the Rokkor, maybe a bit less.

Posted this in Cogitech´s Rokkor mod thread a couple of days ago:







Rokkor 58/1.2 on 5D
This lens produces an amazing background even when the in focus subject is rather distant to the lens.

Any samples from the fast Nikkors and Canons? Wasn't there a highly regarded Canon 50mm f1.2 in FD mount and a Nikon f1.2 Noct Nikkor?
