if you do not need the fast focus, the 180/2.8 is a far less expensive and excellent alternative.

If you still want F2, then the 135 F2 DC or 105 F2 DC are excellent alternatives.

I'm sorry I wasn't quite clear on my comparison request. Could I get one of a top down view, side by side of the 200 f2 versus a 70-200 or 24-70? I would like to see how long and wide the difference is so if the lens could be flat on its side and the shot be taken from top down that would be awesome. Also, no hoods =)

Really appreciated if ya guys do. I'm thinking of selling a lot of lenses to get the chubmeister but want to see if I could hand hold it easily.

Hand holding is not a problem. I'm 6"3" and all of 165# Now carrying it around all day is a bit different.

Handholding is not really a problem short duration, but my comparison photo makes these lenses look really similar in size. The 200/2 is worlds heavier - it's the only lens I own where I have to be careful to grip the lens at all times and never the camera grip, otherwise I might damage the camera from the torque.

+1000
I agree !!!

I was just over my obsession with this lens due to fact that I did not see this topic for some time. Now due to recent bump I had to go in to see what is new here. BOOM there we go again - every online place that has stuff for sale will get a hit from me as I am looking again for one.........you guys are killing me !!!!!!

Anyone use the Nikon C-PL3L polarizer with their copy? It's finally in stock at B&H and I'm on the fence about purchasing it. The thought of even more contrast and better color on this lens is mind boggling
