Yes, as that is the most difficult subject with regard to bokeh, especially tall/long sliver-type onjects like grass blades and such - just look at the Oly 40-150 PRO review here on the site what it actually can cause.
Having said that, considering the short distance to the grass, with this lens it is not bad at all. BTW, longer lenses, especially shor tto medium telelenses do worse at this than other lenses. However, the only lenses I know doing better in this regard are the EF 50 F/1.2L, the RF 50L and the TS-Es - the latter are truly exceptional when it comes to OOF rendering, both in fore- and background.
Kind regards, Wim
