    People seem to get excited about the outright speed of the CV Nokton twins, which is fair enough - they are, well, rather fast... But gees, is there any other lens, for any format, that produce 10-pointed starbursts quite this crisp?

    The present.
    Pentax 15mm f/4 Limited produces starburst at the drop of a hat, and it is a pretty sharp lens. Starbursts are well formed. Fourteen point stars however, not ten.

    Not the greatest example, but somewhat interesting. Shows how easily this lens produces this effect.
