I wanted to test both my new Bessaflex TM camera and the Industar 61 lens. I used a 20 years old expired Agfa CRD 12 iso film and tried to get as close as possible to the flowers and create some bokeh. I made some shots with aperture between f5.6 and f8 where you get the best "star bokeh" shape with this lens and I must say that I'm very pleased with the results. And at f2.8, the round bokeh is beautiful as well. BUT I discovered that the Industar 61 lens doesn't work on the Bessaflex when focusing over 2.5 meters, as the rear part of the lens seems to protrude inside the body too much and prevent the mirror to move.... But for shooting macro and close up shots down to 0.25m it's ok and the lens + camera combo works great!
