    Agreed and in the same position. But I could even live without the 7-14. Now if I only had a spare $4600.......

      My ideal three lens system is:

      7-14
      12-60 SWD
      50-200 SWD

      Chuck in the 8mm (only because I love fisheye effects) and an EC-20 and the kit bag is complete. I have the 7-14, the 12-60 and the EC-20 and in the last hour I have learnt that my dispute with Spanish customs has been resolved and my 50-200 is on its way after languishing in a customs warehouse for the last 2 months !

      Now if only I can find something to sell (film kit all gone) to raise the 1250 necessary I can complete the dream line up with a 150mm f2 - could be a while 'though.

I used the f1.4 25mm pana lens and its boken is of particular interest. Although less shadow depth of field as compared with my prevoius full frame Contax C/Y 50mm or 85mm, but the tonal quality of the image plus the nature boken effect give the picture a very nature / movie lens look effect. In weak lighting situation, it could give a very smooth tonal effect that I have not seen from my Contax set.
        I have now added an additional page of samples in the article, just about as you wished, to explore the bokeh through the zoom range. See:

        Let us know what you think!

        PS I grabbed a few other lenses that morning and produced some bokeh example shots with these as well. You can see the results in my gallery here:

          Ian,

          Thanks a lot for the samples, the out focus rendering looks very smooth.

            Ian,

            Thanks for your effort. boken looks nice. Would also be interested to know the boken rendering on portrait shot from 17 to 35mm. I guess at 14mm f2, it cannot produce any real boken effect on the background burr. Hope starting at 17mm and above, it could give some background out focus effect as similar to the Leica 25mm. Its performance for a full height portriat at 35mm f2 would be of real interest for me.

              Wow, looks like another awesome lens to dream about. It just hurts to be a newbie and be broke at the same time.

                  Hi and welcome.

                  I'm sure one day you could own one - I'm dreaming too.

                    I looked at the samples and all I have to say is Holly Molly! Errr... how much can I get for a Konika Maxum 5D with the kit lens only? Oh, and a "Smena 6" soviet cam? It's working fine, I taped the two pieces together reeeeally tight...
