| p.1 #6 · p.1 #6 · I made a mistake purchasing new 200 1.8 L lens (NSFW) |
told my family don't ever, never, ever touch that lens... ever
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.
Wonderful piece of glass!
Oh, and it's beautiful to look at!
Did I just sound like a gear nerd??
