50 1.4G in hand (possible issues)

i received my lens today with much surprise (as i expected it to come much later). while 'playing around' i noticed that the bokeh at 1.4 on the left hand side of the frame of my d300 is oval-ish. however, when the out of focus highlights are placed at the center of the frame, the shape is much more circular. the right side of the frame does not seem to effect the shape of the bokeh nearly as much as the left side. the observed oval-ness rounds out as the lens is stopped down and is back to a circle at about f/2.8.

Has anyone else observed this? i'm wondering if it is just an issue with my copy
