Is this the version that goes 1:1?

Edit note I see yes it is.

Can you do a bokeh shot with bright lights out of focus so we can see the chrysanthemum shaped aperture in the bokeh?

anything beyond f11 didn't show much of a change from the prior apertures, so I did not use those images....

F/5.6 looks downright festive!

The f/5 version looks like something's gotta give!

There is stuff on the rear element...
