This lens is available for Canon, Nikon and Sony FE. What puzzles me profoundly:

Aperture Blades    9 (Canon), 7 (Nikon), 13 (Sony FE)
Never heard of aperture blades depending on lens mount before! Any insight would be appreciated!

From what I’ve understood: The canon version has electrical aperture control from the body, the nikon version mechanical control from the body and the sony version only has aperture control on the lens.
