The STF (and Nikon's DC lenses) have more to do with the rendering of OOF areas than to help achieve extreme DoF.

In practice, the effect is most pronounced with shallow DOF.  The stepless blades in the STF operate over a range of only 1 stop and most people use it in this range.

Might as well, considering that at this focal length, and especially on an APS-C (stating my case here), the DoF is very limited, and if someone wants greater DoF, 135mm (on APS-C) is not a good focal length for it.

At 15 ft, for example, the DoF on APS-C with 135mm f/2.8 is less than 5". At 35 ft, it is about 2 ft.
