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.

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:

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.

the earlier one with more elements, MC and MD W (the smaller one is just labeled straight MD i believe). it has very similar bokeh to the 58/1.2 - funky wide open (but the same kind of funk i like better than most) but very smooth stopped down. i would certainly not call either the 28/2 or the 58/1.2 very smooth wide open, just smoother than other f/1.2 lenses or other 28/2 lenses. both tend to be a bit smoother at long focus distances than short. the 28 seems to have slightly harder edges on the oof rings and has the disadvantage of hexagonal aperture blades (my pet peeve).

here's a wide open shot from the 28mm at a longer focal distance:

and here's a close up when the background isn't so close:
http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5063/5630337910_c0149a2ecf_o.jpg
finally, here's an example from the 58/1.2 that shows somewhat similar funkiness (i can find better examples on my harddrive but don't have time to upload them):
