Minolta 100mm F/2.8 Soft Focus lives again?

I noticed that Leica is starting (restarting) manufacture of the THAMBAR 90mm F/2.2 Soft Focus lens.

I have owned the Minolta 100mm F/2.8 Soft Focus lens for a number of years and think that SoftFocus lens can give a unique image that is impossible to reproduce digitally.

I do not try for mathematical sharpness I just want images that show emotions and  that the customer will buy
