35mm on NEX 7 - which one has "nicest bokeh" ?

I just published 1st part of the comparison of 20 - 35mm lenses on NEX 7.
In this post, I shot each lens wide open, to show differences in rendering of OOF areas.

If you are interested, you might take a look at:

Twenty 35mm lenses on NEX 7. Bokeh.

I tested following lenses:

1. Canon EF 50mm f/1.2 L USM + Metabones Speed Booster (This combination results on APS-C in 35.5mm f/0.85)
2.Voigtländer 35mm f/1.2 AS II (Using Metabones - Leica M/NEX adapter)
3. Minolta AF 35mm f/1.4 (Using LA-EA2 adapter)
4. Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II + Metabones Speed Booster (This combination results in 35.5mm and f/1.3)
5. Olympus OM-Zuiko 50mm f2.0 Auto Macro + Metabones Speed Booster (using no name - Olympus/Canon EOS adapter. This combination results in 35.5mm and f1.4)
6. Sony SEL 35mm f1.8 OSS
7. Fujian 35mm f1.7 (Using no name C-mount/NEX adapter)
8. Zeiss Distagon 35mm T* f/2 ZE (Using Metabones - Smart Adapter version I)
9. Carl Zeiss Jena Tevidon 35mm f/1.9 (Using no name C-mount/NEX adapter)
10. Canon FDn 35mm f2 (Using Kipon - Canon FD/NEX adapter)
11. Canon FD 35 f2 (Concave front element - Radiocative. Using Kipon - Canon FD/NEX adapter)
12. AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED (Set to 35mm. Using no name (zebra color) Nikon G/NEX adapter)

14. Auto Chinon MC 35mm f2.8 (Using Kiwi - Pentax K/NEX adapter)
15. Leitz Wetzlar Elmarit R 35mm f2.8 (Using Kipon - Leica R/NEX adapter)
16. Sigma 30mm f2.8 EX DN E (This is only lens that differ in FL. I included it, because it is probably the sharpest native E-mount lens, and incredible value for money those days.)
17. Leica Vario-Elmar R 35-70 f4 (Set at 35mm. Using Kipon - Leica R/NEX adapter)
18. Canon FD 24-35mm f3.5 L (Using Kipon - Canon FD/NEX adapter)
19. Sony SEL 18-55 f3.5-5.6 OSS (Set at 35mm)
20. Minolta AF 28-80mm f/4-5.6 (Using LA-EA2 adapter.)
