Does anyone know to what degree you can get a shallow aperture effect while shooting at, say f5.6 or f8, from a distance of around 6 feet. It would be great for me to have the fuzzy background of f2.8 while shooting at 5.6 so I could have a little more depth of field for a fairly tight head shot. To put it another way, would I see any difference between shooting with the 105 DC and the regular 105 lens---if I made the same shot at f8 from the same distance, etc. Could the DC throw the background significantly more out of focus? Thanx in advance.

Yes, the pricey DC is designed precisely to do that, by turning the DC system ring you can either throw the foreground or the background of the focused object out of focus, in addition to depth of field.
Have a great time
