When your potentially looking to use the out of focus area's of the picture as a more active part of the composition I think there rendering becomes much more a matter of taste.

Yes, bokeh is more a matter of taste. And depends on the situation, on the object and how the photographer wants to express a visual messageĀ - I think

I shot this last year for example with my old Canon 35mm f/2 rather than my 100mm macro because I wanted the busier bokeh and the pentagonal bokeh balls to match the "spikiness" of the frost on the grass.

Very good example how to use the lens - and bokeh.
