I didn't compare the bokeh between the lenses but do notice that I really like the bokeh on the ZA 135/1.8. It is different from the other lenses I have: perfectly circular and crisp, very nice.

Comparing photos taken with ZA and ZF/ZE version of Sonnar 135mm, I found out that bokeh of APO lenses disturb me much. I confirmed this observation with Otus sample photos at optyczne.pl. For my taste APO bookeh is too soft in compare to sharper one of previous Zeiss lenses. I meet opinion of people, who haven't liked rendering of Gauss-type lenses. I am not really sure about other properties but most of all I don't like out of focus APO-rendering. I hope there line of achormatic lenses would be being extended or at least line of superachromatic. Thanks Jorge for sharing this article with You new blog :)
Best regards, WZ

I like the look of your new blog. As for the review, I made the same choice for the same reason, though I did have pangs of discomfort as I wondered if I had gotten the right excellent 135mm lens. I used it at a basketball game recently and found the AF really slow relative to what I was trying to accomplish but it worked fine for a model shoot a couple days ago.
