I forgot to say that I would prefer a bit more DOF on the Big cat. There comes a point for me where thin DOF looks unnatural and makes my eyes strain in an attempt to see more.

Subject isolation, I fully get and appreciate. Single feature isolation is (IMO) faddy and even rather (sorry!) screams "amateur got a new lens". Shooting everything wide open is akin to buying a 70-200mm and only using it at 200mm. IMO.
