Please post your 70-200 f/4 portraits...

I'm trying to decide on a new tele-zoom. I've narrowed my choices down to the next few:

Tamron 70-200 2.8 --> +Good optics, +2.8, - focussing abilities.

Tokina 50-135 --> +Good optics, +good build, +2.8,- a little shorter tele, reasonable focussing.

Canon 70-200 f/4 --> +great optics, +good focussing, - f/4

I'm trying to decide if f/4 will give me enough background blur to get me the pictures I like on my 30d. I'm going to use this lens mainly outside so that will give me more space and light. I'm looking for upper body portraits or head shots taken with this lens on a crop body @ f/4 to decide if it will give me the results I'm looking for.... so please post!
