Lovely Peter, enjoy the sun you lucky man. Nothing like good Braai and beer weather.

Some bokeh play with the 50mm f1.2 ai (5 blade) version.

At 1.2 this lens produces ok bokeh but nothing special. at 1.4 it is already very ugly mechanical bokeh and at f2.0 it is very ugly indeed as you can see by photos 1 and 2 below.

However a little creativity and all that is a thing of the past. Thanks to our downstairs neighbour who has put up some lights, unlike us.
Note, no PP used in the making of these photos.





f1.2 you have some ok if ovaloid bokeh







at f1.4 it's bad and f2.0 awful







But it can be rescued.







and produce some lovely shots

And now playing on Tuesday with my new-to-me 35-70mm f3.5 Ai-S. This is the 62mm filter version of the lens that Ron used earlier today for the beautiful Christmas light photos.

From 1 day's usage I can tell this is going to be a great versatile lens. Combined with the 75-150mm Series E it will make a great 2-lens travel kit much lighter than the heavy 3 prime kit I took to Sweden.

So here are some shots from a very cold day over the border in Deutschland to show some of the different capabilities of this lens.





at the 70mm end of the range







and the 35mm end







And a couple using the macro setting







I thought his expression was a little wooden

Cool lens and a good starting price! I bet Jose and John would be interested in this.

Laura - some really nice shots of the neighborhood bar. I love the 135mm f2 shot.


Mark - Love the bokeh samples, but I believe that lens has 7 blades and not 5.

Yes Leighton,
In both your statements above you are correct. The photos by Laura are beautiful (and remind me it's well past dinner time) and the lens is 7 blades, not 5. I am a numpty it seems tonight.

That is one weird contraption that the 500 F4P is attached to, an external auto focus unit?? Probably adds a pound or two to its weight at least. Even $1400 for sale price is not bad at all, but may depend on the condition of the lens.

Mine came with a leather cap. I don't see that will last too long. I would like to find a regular metal cap some day. The 500 F4P has a case that keeps it safe and snug to haul it around in when driving.
