    I like the OOFAs my 105/2.5 gives. But my favorites are my old Dagors - to use the Flying Camera's rating system, the Dagor's OOFAs are as clean as a popcorn fart.

    Indeed! I'll scout around with that Nikon and make a nice little print of something or other, then go back to the same location under similar circumstances (with a waterproof Goretex darkcloth) with a Dagor on my 8x10, expose one sheet of film, and wow.

    No, they make Colt 45 malt liquor!
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Personally, if I find myself navel gazing a photography term, it's generally high time I pulled my head out and go make some negatives. Ymmv.

    You're very full of yourself, aren't you? Here, see if you can translate this: "Ma gavte la nata". And while you're at it, get a better dictionary. I recommend the Second Webster's Unabridged, The Oxford, or the Third Webster's Unabridged.

    Have a lovely day.

    Post Scriptum - You misspelled "Bokeh". Twice.
    I'm busting on you, don't get your panties in a bunch :-p

    And you're right, I misspelled it haha, Stone Fail! Lol

    Careful, deliberate contemplation, among other things.
