Summicron 50/2 : Shimmering bokeh

I dont know whats going on with the left hand side of this shot, but I like it, shot at F2 and ISO 160

I think its just the out of focus rendering coupled with the edge of the lens/sensor deficiencies.

Intriguing nonetheless

Summicron 50/2: Candid Portraits

My brother from Ottawa was in town with his family and at the farewell meal I skulked around with my summicron 50/2 and a Metz MZ 40 attached to my M8

 The difference was I used a homemade cardboard snoot to make the flash more of a spotlight, I also tried to capture people as they acted more natural or themselves as opposed to perfectly posed portraits

 All shots are ISO 160 f5.6 and the flash set for 1/16th power
