Many 50 mm lenses [...] may not be designed to produce good-looking bokeh, since they are more designed for overall sharpness and lower cost. These lenses will have harsher-looking out-of-focus areas, which will give the impression of being less blurry and more rough. I think this is the phenomenon you are seeing.

No, it's not. Don't send him down the wrong road.
