    There has been a lot of coverage of late about the Wanderlust Pinwide, a wide angle pinhole lens for Micro 4/3. I think it's worth noting that our members were a major part of the effort to get the Pinwide project funded in Kickstarter :2thumbs:.

    I thought it would be fun to have a brief (4-day) contest with a Pinwide as the prize. The theme for this contest is Show Adapted Lens Bokeh.

    "Bokeh" refers to the quality of out-of-focus blur in a photo. If your photo was made with a Micro Four Thirds camera with a lens mounted via an adapter and contains some out-of-focus blur, it is eligible for this contest.

    Contest Rules:
    • One contest entry per person.
    • You may only enter a photograph which you yourself have made.
    • The entry photo should be taken with a Micro Four Thirds camera using an adapted lens, and you should tell us which lens you used.
    • Maximum photo dimension should not exceed 1024 pixels.
    • The photo may have been taken at any time, not necessarily during the month of the contest.
    • Moderators at and and their families are ineligible.
    • To enter, simply post a photograph in this thread. HTML and code are enabled to make posting as easy as possible. For detailed information about how to post a photo in this or any other thread, see [URL=""]here[/URL].
      [*]We will show the winning photo on the home page. By entering the contest, you grant us permission to show your photo for this purpose in the event that you should win. Other than that you continue to hold all rights reserved with respect to copyright of your image.
      [*]The contest winner will be determined by member vote (poll). Voting will begin at midnight (GMT) on May 2, 2011 and continue until midnight (GMT) on May 4.

    I edited the contest rules to state that the lens used should be specified as the two of you have done :thumbup:.
