I have attached a small crop from the upper right hand part of the picture. It is straight from the raw file, no adjustments made. I find the shapes and edges of the bubbles and leaves in this out of focus area rather strange. I have looked at a bunch of images shot more or less at the same place, with the 600mm f4L IS II. I have not been able to find anything similar there. The bokeh is much smoother and cleaner.
Comments about the bokeh performance of this lens, especially from those of you who have had the lens longer than me, would be most appreciated.

You caught the duck beautifully, but I do agree with your following post that the water, especially in the corners, looks a bit odd. Did you ever figure out what it is? eml58 is probably the guy to ask, as he has had his a fair while.

I'd probably do better to invest more time and less money.
