Sure it is. There is nothing wrong with stopping it down.

It then becomes an ordinary (but still quite good)  135mm lens. Look at the label of the STF "aperture" ring: only the 4.5 - 6.7 stepless settings are actually labeled as "STF."  Now look at the mechanics of the lens and the placement of the apodization element vs. the aperture blades. Past about T6.7 the apodizing element has less effect because only the central (clear) part is used.
