Hmmm, the blades of the AIS version are not rounded so anything wider than 2.5 will result in a bokeh with angular shaped hightlight. If you have to buy one get the AI version with 7 rounded blades (s/n 740001 to 897333), it is even cheaper than the AIS version, you could find one on eBay for 120-150$. I use one 1990, it's a tank.

As you already own it you could try milling it down. I believe the AIS lens is the one to have and they are not expensive. I used to have one and it was rather good.
