I came across a discussion on FM about how EFCS can affect bokeh at high

"You are 100% right that the bokeh is busy in this shot. The reason is not the lens 
though. Those half-circles mean you're shooting using EFCS, which when combined with high 
shutter speed (due to f1.2) ultimately degrades background blur smoothness."

Methinks this be balderdash. Made no sense to my brain. Didn't compute with my fairly extensive experience with bokeh. Then I searched "cat's eye bokeh" and got several hits, including a different FM thread and known competent sites. All attribute it to optical effects of physical lens design.

What if the Hokey Pokey *IS* what it's all about?
