Re: 17-35mm f2.8 bokeh with close focus

Thanks Michael. If I were at my home computer right now I'd post the harsh background bokeh I saw. Try shooting the gumball machine at an even closer focus distance and see what you get.

That was from about 3 feet, but please post your image.

I'll bet that pre-pandemic you made a lot of money from that gumball dispenser.

Not a cent.  On a whim, I bought it from a junk/antique show in central New Hampshire.  When we did have friends pre-plague, we'd leave a box of quarters next to it.  Now the gumballs have faded and likely gone off, the quarters have gone back to the bank to do our part for the coin shortage, and what we have left is an object d' clutter.
