This is my favourite 135mm's which I also tend to use with helicoids as a sort-of macro.
It is sharp yet not harshly sharp.. hard to explain but that's what I like to most about this lens with of course the creamy background and round bokeh even stopped down.
Heavy and thus beautifully balanced this preset lens has a bokeh like none other. Very neutral colours and excellent contrast.. However, it has become the one I use the most of my (now) ten 135mm range lenses. It is just perfect. The quality of the photos is similar to the SMC Takumar 85mm f1.9. The bokeh is just the best I have seen.
