We definitely want very much 7 blade vs. 9 blade shots.

If you get the 7 blade also, please share many test shots with both side by side. Many of us will really appreciate a comparison. The blade design is different. 7 is the rounded thin blades and the 9 is straight thick blades. No one can aswer the question, which is the ultimate NOCT.

I can only guess that the 7 blade as a slight advantage near wide open because of the slightly more circular opening. You can compare the photo of my 7 blade lens vs. the one below. Maybe this is your lens? I tried to aquire a 9 blade a couple weeks ago on e-bay also.
