    will a studio shutters blades make my 8.75 inch verito less smooth compared to a perfectly round aperture? will it change the character perceptively

    In practice, I would say in most cases, no. The only difference you would see would be if there was an echo of the aperture shape from a small highlight reflecting inside the lens.

    But some very knowledgeable others would likely disagree with me...

    Anyway, back to "bokeh" or whatever ... My Apo Nikkors have wonderful multiple aperture
    blades, but otherwise not slow lenses, with a reputation for hard-sharpness. But given a
    very long focal length the depth of field might be acceptably shallow. Since I already have
    these on Sinar boards, guess I should just look thru them to get an idea ... then I'd just
    need a Sinar shutter. They also have filter slots and cute little filter holders that something could be slipped into to mess up the clarity. Anyone ever try any of these for broke-eh or however you pronounce it?

    Oh ... and for you folks squealing your protest over the term, Fauxtography ... I think I coined that. It has nothing to do with choice of tools or technique, which are basically
    neutral by themselves. But it is intended as a deliberate slur to those who behave like
    pimps toward natural subject matter, and slather it with supersaturated fake digital color just because they've never learned to actually look at things. I pity clowns like Peter Lik
    or the late painter Kincaide. Never lived, never looked, never seen real beauty. What a waste.
