what is the plural of bokeh?



Hehe, I think because it's a foreign word which has no native plural form it should be used like "sheep". But I guess we could further anglophonize it as: bokehes.

some funky wide open mfd bokeh from the 28/2, just skip over this now if you can't stand flower pics.

#4 is too wild for me, but I really like #3, it makes me laugh.

thanks, they're all a little too wild for me if i think of them as pictures. if i think of them visual art that some how makes them more enjoyable. #4 is actually my favorite. in retrospect i think color probably hurts the first two, i should have converted them to b&w.

That is lovely!

Here are a few very early test shots from the 24 2.8 that arrived today...

So far it's really sharp (these are all wide open) and hasn't exhibited the ghosting/glow in highlights that my 50 1.2 does sometimes.

Nice shots Katie. The 24 f/2.8 is a very nice lens. It is good to see you putting it to fine use.

Nice, Katie. I see you are using the rokkors on a Nex, like sebboh. I'll have to get one soon.

It is so convenient, I must say.

I went 100% film this year, selling off my 5D MarkII body, and while I still prefer film and all that it entails, I found I NEEDED a digi body for assignments and quick internet posting. After much research (and frankly getting tired of waiting for the Fuji X100 - which I had on pre-order forever) I decided to get the NEX 5. sebboh was a huge influence in that ... as was the lure of the Rokkor glass. So far I'm super happy; just trying to get used to that live view thingy on the back. That part is so weird for me!

thanks, using the lcd certainly changes the way you shoot. i love it for waste level shooting and anything close to the ground, but normal eye level shooting of people is a bit awkward.

some older shots with the 24/2.8 that i don't think i posted before:
















and a couple from the 28/2:

Quite "interesting" bokeh you brought out from the 28/2 sebboh.

Love this one, Richard. Do you use the 35/1.8 a lot?

oh yes, it can be quite "interesting" wide open at mfd with short distances between subject and background. i'm curious to see what it'll look like on FF when i get my film developed.

Hi Phuc, thanks . In honesty, no, I don't use it often, but I really don't use my a-mount camera much unless I'm doing some sort of event/wedding (which is infrequent at best). Otherwise I generally just carry a P&S with me. But decided to give it a bit of a spin last week and found it to be fun anyway.

Which 28/2 are we talking about here, earlier MC or later MD? I got the impression (from Phuc) that the earlier MC had a very smooth bokeh, similar to the 58/1.2, but that's not what I see here... seems hard like the final 28/2 AF design, but with more aberrations at close focus.
