I don't like bokeh

@Just another Canon shooter:

Er, I got a theory what's missing here. It may well be critical focus. IMO, the closest thing to something in focus is the letter X lying on that book. And given the IQ the lens seems to be capable of, that detail shoul look a little crisper.

I would expect better colors and contrast in this lighting. Something is missing here. Great shot otherwise.

The background (and even foreground) blur is a little distracting on this one. That makes this a good example - thanks for posting it.

Obviously a good lens, but not the ultimate one if this is your concern. Shouldn't be a problem in many scenes, however.

Interestingly, the new Nikon 58/1.4 (which overall falls short of what it should be, IMO) doesn't appear to suffer from this problem.

Question is, would the Nikkor fare better in this particular situation? It may just be the kind of fore- and background that makes for the slightly "busy" bokeh. That doesn't prove anything, and you could still be right. My point is just that it's hard to decide as long as we can't directly compare those lenses. Just my two bits.
