Those retrofocus lenses are kind of good these days.

Totally incorrect. The fact that mirrorless cameras can have purely symmetrical normal and wide primes, and less retrofocus normal and wide zooms than SLRs gives them a major bokeh advantage. Leica has been an industry leader in smooth bokeh for decades. Some of the small primes from the APS mirrorless makers are also pretty stellar. The DSLR design is an obstacle to good bokeh.

Though, I'd love to hear from Leica how they managed to fumble that $6,000 35/1.4 that has inferior bokeh compared to some, several times cheaper, SLR 35/1.4s..
