Short of changing the front element altogether I think you have to live with it.

...I do think the Tamron handles the transition from focus to defocus more smoothly than the Canon.
I was never pleased with the (latest) Canon's rendition of transition areas; went from busy to garish to, "what's that other stuff in there?"
I'm thinking of getting this Tamron in F mount to replace or complement my Nikon 70-200/4vr. Also a very sharp lens but suffers from similar transitional area bokeh ugliness. (but it's so small and light..)
Personally, I went with the 35L, 85L II, and 135L (the classic 'holy trinity' of fast primes).
I am using 5d iii with this lenses. I want to take more close pictures with this lense, but I don't know how to. too much close makes the picture blurry. check these photos, these are the closest I could take. If anybody could help me ....
Interesting, do these type of binoculars also have AF?
I have not used this lens, but it seems like this is a case where there is no down side to adding the soft focus in post processing. In the film days this lens created a unique look. Now, its just easier and probably better to do add the effect later.
