Hi, and thanks for taking time out to clear some things up for me. I'm still in the process of figuring out how everything works. One thing that I haven't been successful in was blurring of the background. I tried dropping the Aperture down to the lowest on the 1650, not sure what I did wrong, but the background didn't look particularly out of focus.

if you're using a short focal length, you'll have to get really close to your subject. The photo below was shot using the SEL1018 at 18mm.  I was perhaps 6 inches away from the cacti.
