    The Tokina 90mm f/2.5 Macro. It's sharp, has gorgeous out of focus rendering and has a strong but appealing veiling flare.

    If anyone wants one, I have it for sale here:

    The 35-70mm matches it perfectly and it's equally interesting!

    Contax 28/2. Nervous, shimmering bokeh, can focus crazy close. Nice falloff.

    Take a look at the lenses from Meyer Optik Gorlitz, in particular the Domiron 2/50 and the Trioplan 2.8/100, for painterly bokeh and soap bubble bokeh respectively.

    The Berogon 3.5/35 is extremely low contrast and low colour response

    If your looking for fantail flares the Rodenstocks (Heligon ) are worth a look and also the Roeschlein Luxon 2/50

    Good production values may not be noticed. Bad production values will be.
