Nobody who even vaguely likes a Noctilux can complain about Nokton
bokeh. :-)

I had a Nokton for a while. It is a good lens, plenty sharp and all, but
it has really ugly bokeh (out of focus rendition). Since I do take a lot
of pictures at the wide apertures, this became an issue for me, and I
sold the Nokton in favour of a Summilux. If bokeh is not an issue for
you, than I think you will be quite happy with the Nokton.
