Lenses / Re: What chopped off my (Bokeh) balls?

Here is another example that is hopefully more clear (please excuse all the christmas tree shots).  You can see the lights at the top of the christmas tree appear to have the bottom of the "cat eye" shape cut off and then the lights lower down appear have the tops of them cut off.

Yeah the upper left part of the frame is actually the arm of a couch that was in front of the christmas tree so that's why those are a little bit blocked.  I haven't noticed any distortion or focus problems.

Lenses / What chopped off my (Bokeh) balls?
« on: December 09, 2013, 03:24:43 PM »
Hey everybody so I was looking at a bunch of shots I've taken recently with my 85 1.2 II on my 5dIII.  I've noticed that on a number of shots that are taken wide open, the bokeh balls seem to be "cutt off" on parts.  I've attached a picture to show what I am talking about.  If you look at the upper right hand part of the frame you can see some of the out of focus highlights appear as balls with parts that are "sliced off."  I've heard some people say something about the light gets cut off by the mirror box or something like that, but I was just curious what you guys thought.  I basically just want to verify that this is normal functioning for both the lens and the camera.

I was showing my mother in law (who doesn't know anything about photography) some pictures I had taken with my 85 1.2 wide open.  She pointed to the beautiful background bokeh and said "Why is it so blurry? I thought you had an expensive camera."  All I could think was "I spenT a lot of money on this lens to get it to look "so blurry" ha ha

I'll have people see my pictures and say "wow, that's a cool picture but you must have edited it huh?" as if to say that it somehow "doesn't count" if I did post processing or that it only looks good because of the computer software.
