Cool. I had a SMC Pentax 85/2.2 Soft that provided good results, but I rarely used it.

This thread reminded me that I had been considering a M645 Mamiya-Sekor C 145/4 SF, and so I just had a look on eBay. There's one there right now for a very reasonable price, plus a few at unreasonable prices, of course. For a few seconds there, I thought I would pull the trigger, and label you as a bad influence. Luckily, clear head prevailed, and I won't do it. Maybe I'm the one who will be a bad influence...

Oh you NEED to have one of the SF Mamiyas, EVERYONE NEEDS one!
I have one of those also, I like it.
Please be careful, some people think they are worth waaay tooo much.
Though, you've been in this game for quite a while, and have much experience, so, I'm certain you will do well.

I shot a crazy amount of photos this AM with the Tamron, the bokeh isn't that great too me.
I LOVE Magic Lantern and 9 shot brackets!
It will be a while, but I will post some more.
You have been forewarned...

Perhaps some day, some year, I will gather all my SF options together and have a comparison.
It actually would help me remember the different renderings.

Here are a few more
These were on a Nex 5N. I've just taken it out of my bag because I've not used it for so long... maybe it needs to go back

Yes, the bokeh in your images looks a bit like spherical abberation is over-corrected.
How is the foreground bokeh? I suppose it is smoother with your lens.

The other lens samples looks a bit smoother in the background.

I love my modified Sigma YS 135 for its soft focus and bokeh control.
