56mm 1.2 bokeh simulated by FF 85 1.4G

Just to get an idea of what the DoF/bokeh of the upcoming 56 1.2 may look like, I took my D3s and borrowed a 85 1.4G lens for some testings.

There are different saying of what equivalent aperture for DoF/bokeh the 56 1.2 will correspond to in FF terms. Some said it is the same as f1.8, other said it is f2, or maybe it is f2.2? I took a sequence of shots from f1.4 to f2.8. Take your pick

My brother has the 5D3 and 85 1.2L (the original, not mk2).  So I'll borrow that later to see how that fair.  I did play with 85 1.2 many years ago, the bokeh is something out of this world, something that cannot be done with a 85 1.4 lens
