Lenses with dreamy soft bokeh
2

Hi all of you

Normally I shoot landscapes and sometimes street photography. Years ago I also did some  photography of flowers, mushrooms...with a Sigma 150 f2.8 (see 2 pics) and I would like to start doing this again. I no longer have the Sigma and am planning to buy one or two manual lenses. I love pictures with a painterly, dreamy bokeh and soft colours. It's all about creating atmosphere.

I must add I'm not a fan of the swirly bokeh created for example by Helios lenses. I prefer a softer less distracting bokeh.

Which manual lens(es) would be nice to achieve this? A macro or a telelens (with extension tubes)? Other possibilities?

All advice is more than welcome! Many thanks!
