Bokeh from Lumix 70-200 F2.8

I used to have an Olympus FT 35-100 F2.0, used for my E-M1 via an FT to mFT adapter. The image quality is amazing, but focusing is slow and very noisy when it focuses. I sold the lens, just used 40-150 F2.8 with my E-M1s (Mk II & Mk III).

Recently, I picked up a Lumix 70-200 F2.8 for my S1R. I felt this is another amazing lens, it is at least as good as 35-100 F2.0 if it is not better. The shot below is a test shot for its bokeh. I love it, what do you think?

I'm not sure... really happy you like your new lens...  and yes, bokeh seems fine.

The thing I'm asking myself is rather: did you somehow mixup forums by accident?

Sounds to me like this might a question to ask in the L-Mount forum . Or what kind of evaluation would you expect from people shooting a totally different system?

If things appear to good to be true - they're usually neither of both.

I think it is not m43 lens. At least, put something for comparison from MFT
The shot below is a test shot "70-200mm" "f/2.8" - Panasonic 35-100/2.8II.
what do you think?
