Yes it's a compromise. Stepping down a few stops will create a wider depth of field, which means focus is less critical.
But that may not be in keeping with the image you had in mind. Still a shot that's in focus will usually always beat a shot that's not.
You can simulate out of focus areas via post processing also.

As above, just because it can create a tiny depth of field, doesn't always mean you should ;-)
