f4 vs f2 (two stops) and there's barely a difference. Funny.

We can't be looking at the same images, I'd have to say.

Mike, I agree there is a big difference in these images. While even f2 wouldn't obscure this annoying background enough, it is clear that f2.2 and f4 are not as sharp as f10. It is also clear, unless one likes parts of their subject matter inappropriately oof, f2.2 and f4 are the wrong apertures for a serious attempt at a portraiture which it probably was not.

Another thing that is clear: that is one well-trained and fine looking dog.
