ISO 1600, 1/125s, f/2.8

Hello,
this is one example.

my impression that the 75mm f/2.8 isn't anything to write home about in terms of bokeh, the FA645 75mm f/2.8 has been around for a while and the resolution is very good on full frame 645.. Though what I have seen from the newer D-FA 55mm f/2.8 AL [IF] shows great promise.

zeiss distagon 60/3.5

from the samples i have seen from this lens the bokeh on the hasselblad distagon 60/3.5 looks great wide open.. i am thinking about this lens w/ an adapter, of course, as an alternative to the pentax 75/2.8 on my 645D..

the pentax 55/2.8 is also a good alternative..

If you speak about f/3.5, this one is more significant as far as bokeh is concerned (with macro tube, FA 75mm, ISO 1000, 1/200s).

Historically speaking zeiss lenses aren't known for great at bokeh either.
