    Taken on a recent family excursion into the Colombian countryside. There are numerous species of hummingbird, all beautiful, and they move very quickly!

    I don't make as much use of bokeh as I could (should?), but sometimes lighting conditions, closeness, etc., don't give me any choice.





    Best wishes,
    Bob

    Experiment with 55mm f1.2 FD

    First at f1.2, then 5.6, then 8, all with 1" extension and mounted on X-pro1. Not very sharp at F1.2, but I love it! Oh, and using a speed booster too, so I guess effectively f1.

    Bokah is influenced by many factors - the lens constuction itself, the iris pattern, the f-stop used for that picture, lens coatings and many other minutae.
    It's quite fun to play around with a variety of lenses to get a variety of bokeh characteristics. The Sone A7X series cameras will - with an apropiate adapter - accept almost any lens which can be found out there.

    The Russian Helios-44 58mm f/2 lens (originally an old prewar Zeiss Biotar design) can be had for a song from Ukrainian internet shops. They came in several consecutive version over some decades and a couple of the earlier ones had a peculiar "swirley" bokeh (not unlike a Petzval lens) when focused around 2 meters and wide open. The swirly bokeh will frame the subject nicely. It canb typically be used for portraits with a foliage background. The funny thing is that this particular bokeh was caused by imperfections in the lens and as the Russian manufacturers eventually got better at controlling these imperfections in the newer versions, the swirl more or less disappeared. I found this example (not my photo) in a Google seach: https://www.flickr.com/photos/bognacki/8690453988

    There's a lens called the "Bokeh king" - the Leica M 35/2 Summicron ver 4. I have never understood that nickname. It's a great lens but the bokeh is really nothing special and it's easy to find lenses with far more pleasant bokeh.

    Without anything sharp in a picture all you have is an out of focus picture, with no effect there. In order to have bokeh, or indeed an out of focus background, for effect, the subject needs to be sharp to separate it from the out of focus elements. IMHO, as it's all very subjective.

    A few photos Ive taken with some Bokeh content...


    D7100, 16-85 lens. People often complain this lens is horrible in the Bohek. I suspect they are taking shots with the VR turned on.

    The following 2 were D7100 and Zeiss 35mm F2.4 Flektagon, just after I converted it to F mount (re machined to correct the Flange distance)





    I think this was the D50 with my 70-300 sigma on it. It was taken at the standing stones at Carnac - a most peculiar place with hundreds of menhirs all standing in rows.



    Watch related, here is my Staking Set, again D7100 / Flektagon 2.4:

    I'd say yes - that's an example of bokeh
