Do you really need 2.8 to get backgrounds out of focus, won't F4 manage it reasonably well. My old pentax film slr only has a 3.5 lens on it and that does it fine ( although I guess it is in effect full frame... ).
You don't need f2.8 to get backgrounds out of focus even f5.6 or f8 will blur the backgrounds depending on the subjects. The longer the lens the more exaggerated the background blur will look.
I would also stay away from super-zoom lenses because of what Chris-p said.
