p.1 #1 · I made a mistake purchasing new 200 1.8 L lens (NSFW)


so I decided to give my old 200 1.8 to my brother as a gift for his upcoming marriage, I decided to pick me up another 1.8
well, this thing is so clean that it breaks my heart (and little scared) to use it for anything other than sitting in my dry cabinet. Now I'm in a search for another 1.8 that can handle little abuse

Happy father's day to me!

I think many here will understand your feelings!


Love mine as well and, like you, I baby it a lot and am afraid to use it under strenuous conditions (rally, motorcross, etc).

I received a brand new 5DMIII last Friday and found a new love for the 200mm 1.8L!
Before I used it with a 50D and 7D and honestly it's just was not the same.
It really comes alive on a FF sensor.

Shame about the 2.5m MFD...
For (very) close portraits it wasn't a problem with a 1.6x sensor, with a FF sensor it can be. But it's well worth the trade-off, AF becomes MUCH improved and, most importantly, the "look" you get in the pictures is just amazing.
Love it.
Wonderful piece of glass!

Oh, and it's beautiful to look at!
Did I just sound like a gear nerd??

Where on earth have you found THAT ?
Either way, you better use the lens soon because one may want to make sure its IQ is as it should be.

Well, Andy, that is one of the newest looking 200 f/1.8 sets I have seen in the past eight years or so.

Should have been tagged NSFW!

One the most egregious examples of photoporn I've ever encountered!

(Yeah, I'm utterly envious!)
