in practical use, it doesnt really matter that much

if oof areas are tht important, youre not going to be shoot at f8

Also I forgot to mention that Sony has been suppressing review articles from exposing this problem to the light of day. They tell review sites not to mention this. If this isn't really a problem, then why they care?

Can't find any reference to your assertions. Are you making this up?
Nor can I find any reason to consider bokeh for apertures > f5.6 as important.
Also, aperture shape will change over time with use as the blades bed in.

De- centering problems however are a real concern but your worries are irrelevant in the real world where people don't take endless shots of charts and geometric shapes.

Why not take some ...you know...normal shots of your dog say and try to find an instance where a misshapen aperture at f8 is detectable. Oh never mind, you won't be able to.
