Remove "" from the title. Forum software does not like umlaut.

Nice dreamy quality. I especially like the purple crocus.

I too recently got this lens. I've only done some few test shots holding it to the camera (freelensing) so can't match these nice pictures posted by Wolfgang. Still, it seems to promise decent sharpness along with the expected bokeh...

I still can't understand the fascination with out of focus pictures with this really distracting bubble bokeh, I realise tastes differ, but I just cannot see what's attractive about it and once you've seen a few of these bubble pics, you've pretty much seen em all.

Tastes differ.
Back in the 1920s+30s you would have been in the f/64 club with Ansel Adams, and some of these other guys would have been sending bromoil prints to pictorialist salon exhibitions.

And surprise, we still like a lot of these pictures Very Happy Very Happy

The expirements with bubbles are fun anyhow, but IMHO Ian has a point, I don't see real innovations after the first pictures. Too much technical try outs, little nice ready to see pictures for me.

Bit wild it is, but I understand the craving for that. Must be some asian genes inherited...not everyone has that. Wink Wink Wink

How is the diameter of this lens? Can it enter into a M42 macro ring together with the original helicoid?

Your right - my diaplan pics are technical tryouts, just for fun playing around with these 10 lenses. I will never pay real money
for a 100mm trioplan to get these bokeh effects....

Just test shots as pointed out.

Ian: You've now expressed your bewilderment several times. Are you looking for someone to convince you why you should like this? Is it okay with you that some others do appreciate it?

I guess some folk see photography as a quest to achieve the closest verisimilitude of the world as they observe it, and others are like the kid with the shiny object trying to make nice patterns by reflecting sunlight on to the wall. I guess I have always enjoyed "playing" with light, and I get the most satisfaction from making a combination of that sort of artifice with some sort of meaningful representation.
But there is no arguing that people have their brains wired up different, and that is probably a good thing.

In many cases, yes, but in some, not so much.
