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.
