| p.7 #6 · Senior Portraits with 200/2 wide open. |
These pictures are especially notable because the style complements the subject's expectations and their generation. We will never go back to: "Look over your shoulder and smile-Next!" Then, for an extra charge, the B&W is, pathetically, "tinted."
But back to the 200 F2.0: I believe it's virtually unique (you hear similar things about the older design Nikkor)-at least compared to all my other many lenses. Yes, the 135L might be closest. Realize 200mm @ F2.0 has less DOF than a 85L @ F1.2. Four stop (+) IS makes this lens, if anything more useful for available light hand held candids.
Such special IQ (I sold my 300mm f2.8 because it suffered by comparison!) nothing else looks quite like this lens. I actually spent lots of time in PP "shopping" my pictures (colors, contrast, etc.) to look like the 200 F2.0 image right out of the camera. Often "The Difference" is apparent on an iPhone display.
