    I am aware of the swirly bokeh summarit indeed but sometimes its too loud, comparing to the summicron i think the details just nice, like little small dots bokehs.

    Would agree on that, swirly bokeh can be dizzy for some the character of some of these old lens are what I sought after even though need to do pp to bring out the colors.

    Sorry haven't really ventured into this old lens yet, and don't tempt me with pictures when you get it, trying to keep the box at the current size

    fyi, i updated the post earlier with unprocessed colors just to show the difference, btw, i'm not that good at pp. it's easy to be turned off by some of this lenses if you look at the pictures ooc, but some pp does wonders. So some vintage lenses and their characters can be had at reasonable price (compared to the M mounts). And it's easy enough to adapt other mounts to M as well, I use OM, EOS quite a bit as well.

    Btw, this is summarit 50/1.5 a very old lens.

    Edit: Updated

    This is before PP.

    Really arh, maybe my skills really no good the shot after has more popping colors, for kids i prefer that way. perhaps a little tweak on shadows will brighten the face a little?

    Attention goes to brighter place vs the dark I guess?
    Maybe you can move up the luminance in orange if you are in Lightroom which usually brighten up the skin...

    @wonglp - I actually like the less contrasty one.. got that sort of dreamy feel to it.

    Just have to crop off the anonymous arm on the right hand side. ;-)

    hmmm...f/3.5 - f/5.5! would prefer a faster lens, but may still consider if performance is good, at least can travel with a smaller package.

    Ok, some more unprocessed ones from leica summarit 50/1.5





    Here's one old cheap lens Jupiter 3 50/1.5 that flares alot as well, but this shot unprocessed is rather nice i think, has a nice glow to it.

    Is the lens hazy? seems to be scattering light... but the swirling bokeh is nice.

    Lord, you are making one of the most ridiculous comparisons ever.... The Leica M9 is the most expensive full frame camera, yet it has some of the worst ever electronics ever. Yet people still buy the damn thing.

    You sure it's not the camera user that's at fault? I haven't had much issues with the shutter lag, really. It's at most a few ms at best.

    On a personal note I find the swirling bokeh too much distracting.
    Especially when the DOF is shallow.
