The Nikon 50mm's get criticized for bokeh. Here are some new images from the new Sig 50mm f1.4 ART. Thoughts?

These shots don't tell me much. Almost every shot was taken in less-than-ideal shooting conditions. The bokeh is clearly better than the 35mm 1/4 Art (big surprise), but until someone shoots this lens side-by-side against the Nikon or the Otus, I'll withhold judgment.

For me to consider this lens, it needs to have bokeh that approximates that of the Nikon 85mm 1/4G. I don't need a sharp 50mm lens.  But I could use a "short 85mm" portrait lens.
