I am using the 50/2.0 Summicron-R, and the 60/2.8 Elmarit-R Macro.  The 
bokeh is fine at large apertures with both of them. The advantage of the 60 
is that one can focus down to about 10 inches, though the DOF at that point 
is VERY shallow.  The following images in my gallery might give you and idea 
of what to expect.

My first post using the Elmarit:
