Hi all: I have recently purchased a 135mm F2 DC lens

I would like to be sure that I understand its settings:

Say I set the Aperture to F4
then,

with R Defocus Image Control at f4, => the background is defocused.

with R Defocus Image Control set to 2.8, -> the background is more defocused (and even more with Defocus Image control set to 2.0).

with R Defocus Image Control set to 5.6, => defocuses/blurs subject too (perhaps used to soften skin blemishes).

I would be grateful for any user's thoughts on whether my understanding is correct.

Thanks!
