I recently bought a Helios-40 85mm f/1.4 (silver finish, screwed-on tripod mount) and was stunned by its “swirly” bokeh. Although it is a monster of a lens (it looks and feels like a hand grenade) and although it is not a sharp lens, its circular bokeh can make images special. How much of the swirl comes out depends on the focusing distance and the aperture.

Nothing scientific about this test. Just curious about how “sharp” these lenses are.
When you edit the RAF files from your Fuji camera, Lightroom CC loads handy Fuji presets in the “Camera Calibration” rider for the “2012 (Current)” process. “Handy” in a sense that these profiles can save you a lot of time. The gallery below contains a couple of samples.
Time to look for another lab.
