Do you have an explanation for the "shutter effect"? Did you shoot with full mechanical shutter?
And the effect is called "cat's-eye", not "cat eyes" ;-)

Great vignetting test. How much, 3 stops?

Cat’s eyes are caused by mechanical vignetting, which is unavoidable with large aperture lenses consisting of more than 1 element fitted to some sort of barrel
Optical vignetting is caused by the unavoidable light fall-off due to light rays falling in at an angle in the image projection by a lens, the cos^4 rule.
Kind regards, Wim

Regarding the weird effect at f/1.2 and 1/4000sec - thinking about it - it may not have been the shutter but a flickering effect from the (LED-)lights.
BTW, multiple "Cat's eye" as shown are surely "cat eyes" ;-)
