STF advantage is in bokeh [at wide apertures] But that doesn't mean the lens isn't designed to be used at anything but wide open aperture.

[Text in brackets] is mine. Isn't this true of almost all lenses?   The reason I grouped the STM with the other specialty focus lenses was that the STFness only applies to wide apertures.

The last thing one needs to worry about at these FL on pretty much any sensor is lack of DOF. The priority is reach, and speed. Not DOF control (which isn't a tall order at telephoto focal lengths).

Just ask them  (hint: I have).  Even back before AF,  blurring the background was very important to football shooters.
