The Fascination with Old Lenses

Daffodil - NEX-5N & Meyer-Optik Gorlitz Primoplan 58mm f1.9. Very interesting bokeh.

Sometimes I am amazed at my persistence with old lenses after so many years.  I thought I would be bored after a little while, but the opposite is true.  I am MORE into old lenses than I ever was.  Not really sure if this is a good thing or not, but at least something to keep me occupied.

What is it that so fascinates me with old lenses?  I tried to answer that, but not with satisfying answers, and I don't even bother with it any more.  I just know that old lenses bring me joy and that's enough for me.

  1. I share your love of experimenting with old lenses, but I disagree that this bokeh is "interesting". It's BAD IMHO. If it *draws away* from your attention of the subject it is not doing it's job. This is what I call "weird-ass bokeh".
