GM85 bokeh horribilis
2

Taking the GM85 sample below, the girls are plenty sharp, nice colour with a Zeiss like 'pop'. Impressive.

However accepting it's back lit, a difficult test, the background blur looks an absolute mess. It almost looks like a faked bokeh attempt with Photoshop. Very distracting.

Am I being grossly unfair, would other 85's have produced better results in this situation?
