Poor mans 200/f2? The eagle that is heavily cropped beyond belief would disagree.
I think you miss this person's intent with that comment, which is one I've made myself many times. I've owned two copies of the AI-s version of the 180 f/2.8 and each cost $300. Considering the second is absolutely mint, I think I got a great deal. Wide open the lens creates a delicious bokeh, of the sort created by the 200 f/2, but for one tenth the price, or if you're comparing only manual focus lenses, one seventh the price. That means it is an awesome performer that is incredible value for the money... hence the poor man's 200 f/2...
