Nikon D800 and 135mm f/2 Defocus control Nikkor

I Decided to trial one of my top lenses this morning. Shot in JPG as I am using a netbook right now and didn't want to crash it with a raw! No editing whatsoever, had to reduce size of file to upload it. What I am noticing is even at f/4 the there is not enough dof to provide focus to both eyes (sometimes you could squeeze it out of the 700). I'd say need to be at f/8-f/11 to get these both sharp. Notice my shutter speed! I recon I could have went lower, I have a few shots at 1/200 and they are in focus too. I will trial with off camera flash when I get setup, in the meantime I am just enjoying the camera.
