Let me clarify my original question.

I take mostly portraits, and with most digital cameras I have handled, it is simply not possible to get the depth of field that is "pleasing" for portraits.

There are several good websites which explain why (e.g. http://www.wrotniak.net/photo/dof/index.html), but basically it has to do with the much smaller sensor found in digital cameras.

Mathematical formulas are available to calculate depth of field, but before I spend $2000 on a D100, I was hoping someone would be able to post sample photographs comparing 35mm and the D100, so I can see for myself instead of getting just a "rough" idea or some numbers.

The D100 sensor is about the same size as APS film, so I was thinking the difference in bokeh between 35mm and the D100 may be similar to the difference between 35mm and APS. To this end, someone experienced with an APS SLR camera may also be able to offer some insight.
