The 80mm f2.8 Zeiss Planar has always been one of my favorite lenses. I only noticed now, looking at Alex's photos, how awful the bokeh is! I wonder how it compares to the 50mm f1.8 Planar?

Thank you Julio and Graham :)

About the bokeh Graham, I found it confusing when there are lights and shades on the background, sometimes it seems like a bad quality jpg but this is how it renders at wide apertures apparently.

More portraits with the Hassy, the first three are made with Distagon 50mm f4., the final two with Plannar 80mm f2.8.

I don't particularly like the first, alex. Too busy and the background is too distracting. The 2nd and 4th are overexposed by about two stops. The third is superb (apart from a slight horizon error) and the last is very good as well. Brava, Alex! Keep it up.

Thank you for your comments Graham, about the first I agree, I was not sure what was going to be the result and well, making mistakes is how I learn :)
2nd and 4th I metered the light as a close portrait, just metering the light on the face on the person, I should have done it metering the whole not just the skin, right?
Sorry about the horizon on the 3rd, I will fix it and post it again.
Please comment anything on my photos, it's welcome :)

I forgot this one with Planar, it would be better using a faster speed.

Sometimes a little motion in the subject is good, like in this photo. Ever figure out what happened in the photo with the big light strike across the middle?

Those were dried straws, as part of the composition, they turned out too much out of focus :)

Well, I thought about mentioning those, but let it go. I'm referring to a photo of the three ladies, but found out after looking again that was from your Prominent, not the Hassey.
