Well Curtis, you might be creating a "monster"
During this busy week I made this preliminary 105mm + 135/2 bokeh "battle"; but conditions were not ideal (no sun to reflect in the background leaves, and I did not include neither the 105/2.8 micro nor the 105-PC. Who knows one day I perform a more complete test.
Anyway here we go:
All shots straight from the camera/no edit (except cropping) - ViewNX2 conversion to jpge - FastStone Viewer - Printscreen command - CS5 resizing - save to web format.
Just as a reference this is the general scene with the reddish rectangle showing the cropped area. The subject is truly a "banal" palm leaf at ~6m, with three leaves some 20-25m behind.

Surprisingly the 1964 made Sonnar appears to be as good or even slight better () than the Gauss AI version, but the Queen seems to be the 135mmf/2, even at f/2.8.
