And the 40% figure must be made up. There are tests that show that the amount of perceived background blur is not directly related to aperture and magnification. The-digital-picture proves this in their review of the Sigma 85/1.4 where they compare it to the 85L.

Alex, I'm not quite sure what you're saying.  Blur-diameter is proportional to the aperture(*) diameter, which I guess is where Steve's 40% figure comes from.  The images in the review you mention show a very significant difference in look between f2 and f2.8.

(*) Not accounting for vignetting, which is a reduction in the effective aperture at the edges of the frame and consequently affects blur properties.
