I get hex-bokeh with mine, but I like that, as I have another lens that delivers circular. Always have a 'nifty-fifty' in the bag :)

As far as I know, any lens should give you circular specular highlights when wide open. They'll only take on the shape of the blades (in your case, hexagonal) when you stop down the aperture. Check out, for example, the highlights in the top left corner of your second photo. These are circular, not hexagonal, because you used f1.8.

Nice photos.
