While I agree that your model is certainly excellent I wouldn't really say so regarding the bokeh of this lens.

The out-of-focus highlighty - especially at the borders - are quite disturbing in my opinion.



Older lenses tend to have a nice bokeh simply because they do not rely on special glass (namely aspherical elements) that can harm the bokeh rendition. Of course that doesn't help regarding sharpness.

The 120mm lens you showed indeed had great bokeh. But this lens? The bokeh is quite horrible, to be frank.



Nice photos (besides the awful rendering by the lens) though. I do like your style.

I can't believe. Here is terrible bokeh? I do not agree! Well, this is the specific picture with the front, middle and rear plan. What is terrible?

I have to agree with Klaus and BC here, the bokeh, even in the last shot, looks quite nervous towards the borders. Just look at the upper left border, that's not really what I'd call smooth bokeh.



Apart from that, however, I do like your style, too.

What is terrible is the very busy, restless "structures" the lens renders. This particular photo (last one, in the 2nd post) is not the worst. Although we do see a tendency of the lens there to make circular patterns in its blurred parts, notice how the yellow seems to swarm around the middle of the image? Often you see this with lenses which do not produce nice bokeh. Not a huge problem on its own, it can be charming. But a sign that bokeh might not be great.



This image:

[Image: 50e31c2985f965da3547dd94904574fc.jpg]

the background bokeh is quite unpleasant. The trees and branches get a "double" quality, almost dizzying.



Same here, with the cement lines:

[Image: 3c13d6510f7d9ed4115df99cb9474406.jpg]

Double lines that makes one wonder if one has been drinking a bit too much.



Here every highlight and circular segment almost becomes an object on its own. No creaminess, no smoothness... just busy, restless bokeh.

Now compare those to this:

And the difference should be apparent. The 120mm is not perfect, but really quite agreeable and pleasant. This 135mm is no star (bokeh-wise at least)

Maybe it's the compatriot thing but I'm with Sergei on this one. Doesn't look objectionable to me.
#9
The upper left portion is nervous for example ( if we are very critical here ).

However, in this shot you used a rather pronounced distance spread between the model and the very close and very far surroundings.This emphasizes the blur so the shortcomings of the original bokeh are hidden.

You have to distinguish between 'just blur' and the bokeh.

In the first and third picture; the bokeh shows as very nervious and causes quite a bit of distraction (imho). Other than bokeh this lens seems a bit more crisp than the previous but perhaps it is also a combination of exposure.
