Sorry I was referring to the K50/1.2
yes, on my K 50mm f/1.2 the aperture blades lie perfectly flat on one another. Really I wouldn't be all that bothered by a slight misalignment in the aperture blades, people make such a big issue out of something that in the end has little to do with Image quality. In years past it was once considered that Zeiss lenses that had a few gas bubbles in the glass elements performed better than the lenses that didn't have any, how things have changed. These days when a canon photographer scrutinising a newly purchased lens under a loupe completely flips out when they find a find a 0.05mm speck of dust under the front element of their precious EF 400mm f/5.6L and threaten to start a class action lawsuit against Canon over dust being in their lenses.

The aperture blades on my FA43 are not even remotely symmetrical. I have seen many other similar examples. In practice I can still shoot amazing shots with it.
