Canon EF 200mm f/1.8L USM

ef200mmf_18l_1_
Review Date: Apr 5, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $3,500.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Unbelieveable light gathering ability. Incredible 2cm DOF at 2.5m Sharpness that puts other lenses to shame.
Cons:
Heavy.

I have to echo the other reviews. I can't believe how good this lens is. It's like shooting with a full-color night vision system. I shot an indoor swim meet this past weekend and I was shooting at 1/1000th sec. and faster at f1.8, ISO 800. This is my new standard indoor sports lens. Grab one while you still can. I bought mine on ebay from a Korean seller.

 
Gitzo G1548GT Mk2 Carbon Fiber

Review Date: Mar 30, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: + built like a tank + large platform + bubble level + can be quite tall + incredibly stable
Cons:
- twist legs take longer to adjust than snap style - despite being carbon fiber, it's still heavy - large head means even when legs are folded, diameter is still large

For heavy cameras and large lenses, this is an excellent tripod. Stability is rock-solid. Excellent for use with a Wimberly head.
