Yeah I'm not thrilled about the 7 blade design, rounded or not.

That's not what I want in a portrait lens. Not to say the bokeh won't be good because it only has 7 blades. But still... It's kind of a let down on paper, especially considering how long we've waited for a dedicated portrait lens from Fuji. It's clearly a cost cutting decision, and I thought this would be a flagship lens, if not THE flagship lens.

Hopefully the bokeh doesn't suffer. That would be tragic.
