    the shots i tend to gravitate to seem to only come out with the bokeh when i have it on manual. plus 1, 3, 4, i wanted a very narrow DOF.

    Honestly, that has nothing to do with narrow DoF and bokeh. DoF is a function of aperture and focal length. Bokeh is a function of DoF, aperture, and the lens you're using. None of these really have great bokeh anyway, though that's a bit subjective. Nailing focus is critical and the only one that appears to have decent focus is #2.

    I love 3. :) It seems kind of blurry, but it's really cool.
