Great bokeh with the Panasonic 20-60mm F3.5-5.6 L mount

Is it possible to achieve a nice bokeh effect with kit lens? Panasonic proves you can, with the Panasonic 20-60mm F3.5-5.6 L mount

I have shared a lot about the Panasonic 20-60mm F3.5-5.6 L mount in the last couple of months but today I wanted to share some sample photos where I managed to get really nice bokeh with this kit lens. 

These are just random photos on random locations, no special setup:

These are jpeg-s straight out of the camera, no edits, color corrections or anything else. It is not very often to see such smooth bokeh from kit lens, not only in good light but also in buildings with artificial light.  

Personally I like these images a lot, I believe the Panasonic 20-60mm F3.5-5.6 has a lot of potential and has quite versatile focal range.

I will be very glad if you leave your consumer comments about these images - what do you think, could this combo Lumix S5/20-60 kit lens be used even for professional work?
