    Congratulations, Dennis! Good find!

    Those fine examples show that the shallow DoF isn't gonna be too much trouble for you, and the bokeh in the last one is very pretty. I'm looking forward to more!

    Thanks a lot Geoff, Tori and Adam.

    Geoff, the exposure here is just guesswork and trial and error. I do not have a seperate lightmeter. It is not that big a deal, though. Within a couple of tries you can get the right exposure (or close enough).

    Tori, on the indoors shots (1 to 4) I used an apperture of f/11. I tried closing it down further, but stopping down further did not seem to increase the DOF all that much (while it did lower the sharpness due to diffraction).
    Regarding the experience with manual focus and metering glass, I find that I am getting better at judging the light. My initial guess of the exposure is now a lot closer to the right exposure than when I just started with the 135.
