What happened to the bokeh in this shot? It looks bizarre...

Re: It's what this lens does

I'd agree that the bokeh of the 35mm f/1.8G is not that great wide open (mainly due to aberrations), but it "quietens down" quite quickly (well, mine does). The background on the left-hand side of the frame looks normal (for the lens). The background on the right-hand side of the frame looks a bit off (the yellow and blue toys, especially) - possibly caused by processing? I wouldn't expect mine to do that at f/4 (it's normally pretty smooth in its rendering of the background by then).
