7 lenses - The Great Bokeh Comparison

Well - I don't know how "great" this my little comparison is, but at least my
next posts in this thread will contain a lot of samples & crops from these
lenses (with D90)....

Some of these are quite well know "poor man's" bokeh monsters, even here in our forum:

  • Jupiter-9 (85/2), fast Russian gem...

  • Helios-44M (58/2), another bargain from Russia

  • Tamron 70-300/4-5.6 LD Di, cheap but quite fast consumer zoom telelens

  • nikkor 16-85VR

  • micro nikkor 55/3.5

  • nikkor 50/1.8D

  • Helios-44M, MONOCLE version...This monocle version of Helios -44M lens is pretty special - here is more about that:

Here are some my "real life" photos with these lenses as for example...
