I've just completed a new page at my web site with pictures done with 5 historic Portrait lenses. Bokeh + ! I've compared the Kodak 405 Portrait, Bausch & Lomb Plastigmat Portrait, Gundlach Hyperion, Voigtlander Heliar, and a no-name B&L Balopticon projector lens.
If you're interested in fuzzy pictures, go have a look. Photospeak at the end about each of the lenses used.
If you don't like fuzzy pictures, or me, ignore this thread.
If you see something you like, or don't, I'd love the feedback.
I'll double post this for my friends over at APUG too.
