I don't enjoy the Bokeh in this example Mark. In part due to the angular nature and the umbra / penumbra of the highlights, also I believe the bokeh should help the subject stand out.

This is one of my favourite examples where both foreground and background are equally blended.

and here no highlight distracts

That is the kind of Bokeh that I strive to get!

I'm afraid it didn't come cheap!  Welcome to the wonder that is the A* 200 f/4 Macro, don't let anyone cast aspersions on its quality or worth.
