It looks like some lenses that have "nervous" bokeh. I can't say I like it...it's really bizarre looking...
You can always control it Those effect with rotation appears on the wide maximally open (f1.5-f2.0) and if you have many facture lights (like leaves) on the background

In particular, Helios 40-2 used for woman portraits and the landscape photos

Helios 40-2 is great, artistic and very cheap lens Also, I want to buy the Pentax 85* /1.4. Where I can buy it?

And maybe I'll buy Pentax 50-135* /2.8 for quick portraits

I love my EF 85mm 1.8.... Great size awesome AF and great IQ....
If you love usual photos with classical (boring) bokeh - Canon is your way

I think the weird bokeh happens a lot more w/ busy backgrounds...e.g., even stopped down to 2.8, the tree in the background looks weird:

and this one does as well:

Interesting lens though. Varies from "what in the world is that weird background?" to "wow...smooth ultra creamy bokeh" :-)

.

The Super Tak 85mm f/1.9 had some wonderful but weird bokeh:







The M 85 has more traditional bokeh, but it can realy 'bleed' colors in the
background, which I find very pleasing:








The Jupiter-9 does strange stuff wide open:



But stopped down 1 (or 2?) it is just beautiful:

wow, the stopped down Jupiter-9 bokeh is quite beautiful, looks a bit painterly even. Maybe thats the magic of the 85mm prime, the bokeh

Here is one with the Auto Takumar 85mm f 1.8. It almost looks macro cropped with the K20.

Regards

What a great link, with many first-rate shots--fantastic work! The site is a little slow, for me; downloading takes time. But surely worth it--thanks.

I have two 85mm lenses:

Nikkor AF 85mm f/1.8D
Minolta MD Rokkor 85mm F2

The Nikkor is superb, but the Minolta is better!!!!

I also have a Tamron SP 90mm F2.5, which is pretty good.
