Hi,
I absolutely love the Chinon 55mm f1.7. I was wondering whether there is a telephoto lens (90-180mm) with a similar bokeh.

Thanks.

Might well be advantageous to post an example of the bokeh you find so attractive. It's quite possible that someone who is unfamiliar with the Chinon lens may recognise the characteristics you require and be able to make a recommendation. I certainly do not have any Chinon lenses, however I do have a selection of short to medium-range telephotos of various manufacture Wink

I hope that this is of some use.
I had the Auto-Revuenon 1.7/55 which I think is the same lens as the Chinon.
Here is a shot with it first followed by a couple that I have found which resemble mine in bokeh.

Auto-Revuenon 1.7/55

#1


Super-Takumar 4/150



Jupiter 9

#1


Nikon E 2.8/100

#1


Komuranon 3.5/135 pre-set
#1



There are certainly others

Hi, been a while, but I suggest you look at the older Chinon tele photo lenses as you already use M42 or the "brethren" cameras and lenses like the Weist 35SL, also made by Chinon.
This is the Super-Weistar-DM 135mm f/2.8 which has, as I see it similar characteristics; wouldn't you agree?

My immediate thought is the Auto Chinon 135mm f2.8 - a very common and inexpensive lens that to my eye has the Chinon bokeh you like.

I've got a couple 55 1.7s, a 35 2.8, and a 135 2.8, and they all have that Chinon look to a certain degree.

You could look at the Tair 11a. 135mm 2.8 A lens known for it's buttery smooth Bokeh

Sure, but the Chinon in question has more of a bubbly, almost swirly bokeh; not everyone likes it but I love it.

Longer lenses tend to have less field curvature so less swirl. Best shot are wide aperture lenses (f2 and wider) But those are ging to be more expensive because sought after. You could always reverse an element though :p
