Default Have you ever seen onion bokeh this pronounced on an 85L II?

Just curious what kinds of responses I may get.

I've seen many posts/pics related to onion-B, but I don't think I've seen it so pronounced.

The attached pics are basically untouched. No sharpening added, and no contrast adjustments. Maybe WB adjustment, but nothing else.

Btw, I replicated this same shot with a bunch of other canon lenses (L and non), and the only other one that has any semblance of these onion circles is the 35L - but it is nowhere near as pronounced as the 85L II produced.

Are you sure you aren't, in fact, shooting onions?

Where those by chance LED lights that have the inverted cone at the end? The way the light reflects might cause the ring look.
Just my 2 cents...

Nope, pointy tip. None of my other lenses produces such concentric circles in the bokeh. (Except the 35L, which doesso but to a much lesser degree.

I know some people have had to adjust their microfocus with the 85 1.2 to get it spot on, could this be the culprit? I'm not an expert, just throwing that out there.

I've never seen that before, the only times my bokeh balls have looked weird has been when my lens was dirty.

But the lines in yours are even and consistent from one to the other, strange!

subscribing to see the outcome.
