      The dark background really makes the subject look dramatic.
      I see that this is taken with at 600 mm 'wide open' at F 6.3 - does the depth of field get noticeably larger if you use F8 or F11? I suspect not much, but I don't have a lens this long so I'm curious.

      Hi @Chester AP .. Thanks for the CC :) .. I find that this lens gives great bokeh but I'm not that experienced to give accurate tech feedback. In all honesty I don't think it's that much noticeable to my eye but to someone more experienced it may be. The subject in this image was approx 5 meters away and the background no more than 2 meters further back. I will look through my images for a similar one shot at F11 and post it for comparison :)
