I think the fact that he would have to go to such lengths to get the cateye bokeh to rear its head speaks to how much of an issue it actually is. The whole notion of bokeh at F/5.6 on an F/1.4 tele lens is a bit..... dubious.

Lol, that's up to him isn't it?

It was just a suggestion to see how stopping down affects the bokeh ball deformation.

The Sigma 50mm ART has cateye bokeh balls in the corners wide open but is rounded from f2:

Maybe the Sony 85mm GM does the same?
