Optics Theory - This forum is aimed towards the TECHNICAL side of photographic OPTICS THEORY. There will be some overlap by camera/manufacturer, but this forum is for the heavy duty tech discussions. This is NOT the place to discuss a specific lens or lens line, do that in the appropriate forum. This is the forum to discuss optics or lenses in general, to learn about the tech behind the lenses and images. IF you have a question about a specific lens, post it in the forum about that type of camera, NOT HERE.

Some excellent examples in this thread - posts 1861 and 1867 exhibit particularly wonderful bokeh.

What a camera combination Marek! I envy you on that 80/1.4 in Nikon mount, would love such a lens on my F3 for portraits ;-)

Here is bokeh from one of the smoothest lenses I know - the 105/1.8 Nikkor Ai-S:
