    Trying out the bokeh on a new-to-me SMC Takumar 55/1.8. I could learn to like it. ;)

    Very busy background- framed pictures and a multi-panel mirror.

    Varied light sources- tungsten lamp, bright white tree lights and window light on the wall.

    And just to be totally weird- a bokeh xmas tree.

    Very nice and smooth oof, and the bokeh balls do not exhibit any bullseye effects.

    Great minds, etc. ;)

    Thanks guys, I was quite impressed with the bokeh myself. I waffled back and forth between this lens and a Tak 50/1.4, but so far I'm glad I got this one first. Notice the "first" there. :)

    Thanks guys, it's really a joy to be able to use some of these old lenses with the 5N. I had a heck of a time focusing manually with a dslr.

    I feel the same way. I loved my pentax SLR but my NEX is a revelation with legacy lenses. I do wish I could put the focus assist button at the top though . . . </quibble>

    I have a dslr too, and the nex is perfect with manually lenses, better than my canon 7d...

    I still have my K20, though I haven't had it out of the bag since I got the 5N. I keep it because it will still do some things the 5N can't. Eventually it'll go though I'm sure.

    I put focus assist on the right side of the wheel, that seems to work pretty well, you might try it.
