    during my lunchbreak, I shot a few pics with my G1 and a Bell & Howell 25/1.9 c-mount vintage lens.
    This lens has the well known "swirly" bokeh.

    Here's two examples !



    Both shots wide open !

    Comments and critique highly appreciated !

    Very nice pictures, I love that swirly effect, didn't know the B&H also had that. It looks great in the flower pictures, and in yours the colors are really nice IMHO. I keep thinking I should see how that swirly effect works with portraits but then forget about it again... I have an old uncoated Cooke Kinic that shows the same effect.
