IMHO Planar is Stellar performer maybe sharpness is inferior but it's bokeh is more pleasant for me than bokeh of Apo-Lenses. Zeiss Otorum Bokeh remind me effect of adapting apodization filter. It has been provided by Fuji in their new version of Fujinon 56mm. It's a little psychological effect, when You blur the background more the first plane is judged to be more sharp in opposite.
Bokeh of (no-Apo) Planar is most favorite for me

Hi JJ - thanks Lighting was indeed a beauty dish. A small (18") white Elinchrom dish only just out of shot above her and a lastolite Triflector in front to throw some light back in to her chin and around her face. No backlight - just a simple radial gradient in Lightroom. There's a little more post/re-touching on this shot than I'd normally do - that was the kind of look we were after Cheers, Nick.

Thank you The 135 is by far my favourite portrait lens. I only wish I had a room long enough to use it for 3/4 & full length shots! But for headshots - it's ideal. Has that Zeiss magic for colour & skin tone.
