Testing bokeh with m8.2 and zeiss planar

Just thought I'd test the bokeh on the zeiss 50mm planar.

Pic taken at f 2. Nevermind the exif data on the lens below... lens is not coded on the M8.2.

I like it :-). Please be easy on me on the composition... and I know ... i didn't have the heart to open the gold label just yet.

Hopefully you got into the Gold Label too...

Cheers,

Well, since you asked not to mention composition, I won't say a word. but the lighting… Man…

As to bokeh, this is an excellent example of the lens capability. For those who doubts that 2/50 Planar ZM has neutral bokeh, this is a picture to see.

Touche :-). Gotta get my monitor calibrated.

But yes. Very pleasantly surprised about the bokeh with the planar.
