I am considering buying the Sigma 30mm. The one thing that is holding me back is the harsh bokeh. Smooth bokeh is a priority to me and my manual Rokkor lenses are my favorite because of that.

Could someone show me examples of smooth bokeh, or is that not possible with this lens?

I bought the Sigma 30 and I didn't like the bokeh, but I was comparing the Sigma against my Zeiss 24. Even at f/2.8, I much preferred the Zeiss over the Sigma. I didn't think the Sigma was too harsh, per se, but I didn't think it was impressive either.
