Got another MF-Nikkor yesterday. Lost bids on a 25-50/4 and a late model PC 35/2.8, but had luck with a pretty low bid on an already Ai'd Nikkor-Q Auto 135/2.8. I have basically no need to get another 135, but had my eyes on several budget-priced pre-Ai-models.
Getting a not very rare lens from overseas doesn't make much sense because of shipping-costs and additional import-duties (not to speak of the hassle to deal with the customs).
Anyway, here are some first tries with it, shots while killing some spare time:

I have tried most of the 135/2.8's (all except the earlier ones than the Q and the Series E), and I love the Q the best for the reasons you posted, beautiful bokeh. Looks like you got a really nice copy. I have two of them, one in great shape glass wise, the other in great shape mechanically. I make due with the great glass (the focus ring is stiff) but I really like it.
