Very truthy. "Bad" or distracting backgrounds at f8 are somewhat more
blurred bad and distracting backgrounds at f2.8.
On the FL thing, the mZ 100-400 has another thing to add to the whole
blurry mess -- atmosphere. You and Mike have mentioned this many times.
Sometimes I love this, sometimes I don't, but mostly do. Across a prairie
as dusk approaches it suggests humidity, maybe heat, which can be rather
accurate to the feeling. Feature not bug.
