Chris sent me a Petri 55/1.7 and I finally had a chance to use it:





Bokeh seems to be on the harsh side, but fairly sharp results! Both were
shot at f5.2

I like the first one, second one little confused to me.

Attila, you're right, the second one's background/bokeh is pretty busy.

yes I agree it seems sharp but bokeh seems nothing to write home about.

Interesting Bill. Glad you were able to get use from it. And even with the harsh bokeh, makes for an interesting view on a perspective. I suspect some people would actually like that. 2nd images sort of reminds me more of what bokeh might be represented in a painting.


Yes, in the second pic, it's quite painterly, in a Claude Monet way. You
can make out the paintbrush dobs on the canvas!

So, the second pic is a mixture between impressionism and realism? Wink

Petri lenses tend to be really sharp (just as mine) but not very well built (just as mine).

And the bokeh that my Petri (1.7/50) produces also is not that creamy... Wink
