Furthermore, if you want an equal lens for APS-C, it's still highly unlikely an APS-C version will be cheaper. Take the workhorse 300/2.8 as an example. To provide you with the same DoF isolation, you would nee something like a 200/1,8 for APS-C. Another example would be the standard 70-200/2,8. What would a 45-135/1,8 zoom cost? A 300/4 prosumer tele? What would a 200/2.6 set you back?

The small DOF of fast telephoto lenses is a problem, not a solution. Virtually all long lens shooters would have appreciated one stop more DOF at F:2.8.

Enough DOF is an absolute (depending on output size). Thin DOF is not; it is a matter of aestetics. One stop difference is usually not visible and whats to prefer is a matter of opinion.
