I think of it as $200 vs $50 for a 5 day rental....
Plus you get a look that cannot be achieved any other way - I don't shoot Canon but the Nikon 200 F2 has a look that only the long exotic primes have.
But at the end of the day - as long as he got paid - who ready cares?
I did not mean to offend, nor question his choice. If I was still a pro, I'd certainly own a 200 f2. I think it would quickly earn its keep.
I appreciate his sharing of this fine image. I know the customer was pleased.
