oh yes, I noticed that: some iris make little sense to me. What's with the buzz-saw?
Then again maybe in 16mm cine times the speckled highlights bokeh wasn't as hip as it is today :whistling:
Well, to be fair, you do have to go somewhat out of your way to get those when stopped down... or just have a tendency to use MFD a lot, like me... :rolleyes:

Speaking of buzz-saw... this is what my G.Zuiko 50/1.4 does at f/2...

I have also a lens that does that: it "hooks" at apertures just off wide open
The G.Zuiko is an 8 blade job, right.... they forgot to curve those blades tho.
Modern "Art" lenses seem to have now 9 curved blades, maybe because people do care about speckled highlight?
Ah, and there is "squiggle" visible: I have a lens that shows "tennis ball" squiggles: caused by bonded elements separating

This is probably raindrop bokeh, but certainly fits into the weird category (Auckland Harbour bridge)
