Measurements of the analyzing power in the two-nucleon transfer reactions Ge70,72(t→,p) have been carried out. This is a region where a shape transition has been previously proposed. Contrary to recent (p→, t) results, no strong interference effects between direct and two-step processes leading to the 21+ states have been observed. However, a marked difference has been revealed for the 31- octupole transition. A microscopic interpretation of this effect is proposed.
