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.
