Very surprised on how much bokeh i got with a sony 18-55 kit lens at f5.6!

My friend just got a Sony A3000. In all honesty, i kept telling him that he shouldn't, it looks pretty crappy, but after using it, it started to change my views. Its a very simple camera, theres only like 4 buttons, but the bokeh i got on the 18-55 at 5.6 really gets me. I understand DOP and everything, but i was never able to get such bokeh when i had my nikon 18-55 kit lens. i don't remember shooting any closer or farther. on the nikon 18-55, Even if i shoot close to my subject at 55mm, f5.6, which should increase bokeh, it never got as much as the sony did. it makes me wonder if the sony really is at 5.6.

I did take almost the same exact picture when i had my nikon kit, but when i did, the trees were kinda in focus at 5.6

Maybe im trippin, but those definitely don't look like 55mm at f5.6
