I'm trying to figure out why someone would opt for a 200 fixed when it's basically covered in the 70-200 area, and not just go the 300> 2.8? The half stop difference can't be the draw card here.


It's one stop and it's a big deal. REALLY big deal.

I was looking at some old photos I shot with the 70-200 VRII the other day and I was like.. umm, what happened to the bokeh? I thought I had stopped down but no.. those were wide open. I thought the backgrounds look horrendous until I realized that I just got used to the 200 f/2 rendering!

I will say this: If you own a 70-200 and are convinved that the 200/2 is basically the same as the 200mm part of the 70-200, then move on, don't look back, and live happily ever after Whatever you do, don't EVER make the mistake of trying a 200/2, because it WILL haunt you.
