Prabir,

That is such a lovely effect.  Does the Zeiss Biotar have that swirly bokeh, or is that just in the Soviet implementation?

So neat.

Some say that those of us who like to talk about cameras should instead go and take pictures. I say we should go and also take pictures.

Thanks, Henry.
What I heard is that this swirly effect is available in the Soviet version only. It was actually a defect that became the USP of this lens.

Thanks. This image was made in a restaurant in Kolkata, near my house.
The point which I made with this image is the swirly bokeh that comes when one uses a Helios (M42) manual lens.
