Best stopped-down bokeh?

Hey Folks,

We all know those high-performance lenses that are sharp wide open and produce wonderful bokeh at large apertures. But I was using my 85/1.9 SMC Tak and realized that it produces very smooth bokeh even when stopped down, despite the smaller 'circle of confusion'.

Anyone with experience and/or samples of lenses which have good bokeh when stopped down?

85/1.9 SMC Tak ~f8. Nice even with a busy background. Also around min focus distance, which helps things out too:
