You can add the Sears 70-210mm zoom to the list. This was (probably) made by Samyang, so could also be branded as any number of other lenses.

Its kind of fickle (as in, not every shot shows it), and I've never deliberately tried to get it to swirl, but it does.

Fiddle with the macro function on the lens just right and you can get it to swirl AND glow. It makes for an intriguing effect.

This is probably my favorite shot from this lens that shows the swirl.
