Petcal (Peter, no?)

That last teacup shot is stunning. Love it to bits.

This thread is highly dangerous to one's liquidity.

To those who have this and have used the 300 2.8 IS. Is the 200 plus a 1.4 as sharp as the 300 at 2.8.

I don't have the 300 f2.8 IS, however I have read that it's pretty darn close.

I keep repeating this into my mind:

"200 2.0 sucks"
"200 2.0 sucks"
"200 2.0 sucks"
"200 2.0 sucks"
"200 2.0 sucks"
"200 2.0 sucks"
"200 2.0 sucks"
"200 2.0 sucks"

Useless, trust me. And you guys come up with threads like this...

I think I am kind of prime L lens junkie. I now have the most important ones up to 135mm (included). And I try to convince myself that 135 is long enough for all my needs. 200 2.0 IS is on my wishlist...if it would only be a bit cheaper, like the 300 2.8, I would have got one. But for now, the 300 is a bit long and the 200 a bit too expensive. I guess that in the end I will buy some studio lighting with the money for a 200 2.0, but some day I will get my hands on one of these white guys.

Has anyone done a comparison of the 200 f/2 + 2xTC against the 400 f/5.6L? I am interested to hear about focus speed and IQ...

I've owned both lenses simultaneously. 2x TC requires stopping down 2 stops to regain sharpness of the bare lens when magnified digitally (across the whole frame)... thus, f/8 is needed. The 400/5.6 will be sharper at f/5.6 than the 200/2 + 2x TC. Focus is faster on the 400/5.6L as well.

The main advantage of the 200 over the 400/5.6 is the IS in this case.

Thats a pity. I was hoping that I could get the 200 f/2 and that would stop me from needing a 300 f/2.8 and 400 f/5.6, but alas not :-(

I should add that 2x TC + 200/2 can be stopped down 1 stop for "good" sharpness and "great" sharpness in the center.. and most wildlife is in the center anyway.

vborrut.. 1 and 3 are really nice, can't wait to use mine "in anger" at a wedding.

More goodies This lens makes me do too much work removing every little fleck of skin and pore and errant hair, it's so darn sharp @ f/2. I'm liking this lens the more I use it.
