I reset all my settings - didn't help.

But here's something I discovered - when I hit function 6 (which is the preview function, which adds shutter effect) and then move the aperture ring, the LCD screen updates correctly and shows me the depth of field expected.

However, as soon as I press the shutter button even half way, the shutter effect from function 6 disappears!

This is as it should be. The reason is that half press = AF on your camera, the default.

In order to AF, the lens has to be opened up to widest aperture.
