So here are a few with the the compact, old, yet totally capable Leica Summitar 50mm f/2.

first two with the typical 'crazy/swirly' bokeh when shooting this lens wide open:

next two at a lesser open aperture (there are no click stops so the possibilities are quite a few), some bokeh but a lot more toned down:

Those are gorgeous!

I'm a sucker for swirly bokeh. I've been tossing around the idea of picking up one of these classics, or maybe an Elmar 50mm f/2.8 (the older one with 15 aperture blades).

Thanks Michael.

Both are really interesting lenses, but the look of the Summar and Summarit are just so unique (that why I was won over) it hard to resist shooting wide open all the time.

Either way not so bad for a 63 year old $230 lens...
