Pros: Incredibly fast lens that can be used wide open and only gets better by f/2.8. Incredible contrast and sharpness to the corners.
Cons:
Cost!

This is possibly the sharpest lens Canon has made for the EF mount with real competition from the EF 135 2L. I've owned two different EF 300 2.8L's and EF 300 4L and two EF 300 4L IS lenses, have rented the EF 400 2.8L and the EF 200 1.8L is flat out the sharpest of the bunch!

The EF 200 1.8 produces 3D images on chromes and with its shallow DOF and fast AF action this is a great sports shooters lens for isolation of subjects at short distances. It also seems to work well with the EF 1.4X and makes a great portrait lens if a bit heavy for most. Can be used wide-open with excellent results but be prepared for the pop you will get by f/2.8 and f/4. Outstanding optics but the only way I can justify it is to rent it for a shoot,
