Just got this today. Some quick samples all shot at F2, outside at dusk, hand-held. Converted with Breezebrowser (proofs), no adjustments other then downsize and minor sharpening.

Congrats BuLLets on your new Lens. Great sample shots. Yes it is a tad expensive but I absolutely love mine. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do

Great shots. The 200 f/2 IS seems to make a super portrait lens, doesn't it ?

It's heavy with a 1ds mark iii, but it worked out just fine. I'd like to try it in slightly better lighting conditions. But from what I just shot it's looking good to say the least

I am still not impressed by all the images posted on FM so far from the 200/2.0L IS compared with those from 200/1.8L...

Keep them coming and thanks for sharing...

Cheers

You are a meany, Lide.
Have you noted the shutter speeds for the Bullet's images ?
You try that with the 200 f/1.8 hand held or even on a monopod....see what your keeper rate will be at f/30 or even f/50 sec.

haha...i can put the 200/1.8L on tripod, why using the monopod ? lol....

I would just bump up the ISO to 800-1600 and shoot, the IQ from 1Ds Mark III is still great....

I know when the lighting is good and everything is right, the stunning images from the 200/2.0 will come....we have to wait..

I understand your points, Lide.
However, we should keep in mind that anchoring the lens on any sort of a pod would alter the character of its use. For one, I have never used my 200 f/1.8 on a pod as I like to shoot with it while moving about (I don't do court sports).

Secondly, the 200 f/2 IS would also benefit from high ISO as much as the 200 f/1.8 does....except at any ISO the 200 f/2 IS would always have a few stops shutter speed advantage regarding camera/lens shake. Again, tripod is the only way you could continue to shoot with the 200 f/1.8 in the kind of a low light where hand-held 200 f/2 IS still gives fine results.

(Obviously, we are not talking action photography here. )

Wow, I'm very impressed how well the IS did for the lens at such low shutter speeds

+1 sorry. Great IS evidently, but so far none of that 'wow' factor that seems so common with the 1.8 images.

And you guys really think this is because of the lens, not the nature of the photographs, the light, or the photographer themselves? lol..

Erm no, I don't recall anyone saying that - but when you have no great samples available, it is hard to conclude it is worth $9000 (current UK price)

Keep in mind guys, those shots are quick initial test shots, taken right after the OP received the lens.

But this lens has been out in the US for long enough for someone to post some staggering images with it surely? All I seem to see is 'a few quick test shots'

I hasten to add that the few quick test shots I did outside the shop that sold me my 300/2.8 were stunning, and convinced me to buy it. I honestly don't understand why no-one seems to have any jawdroppers yet.....

You must have dragged a great model with you to the store, huh . Plus, the lighting when you did that must have been great also.

Another thing that I noticed, most people here when they post test shots to show case some lenses, don't do any post processing. Normally, I would do my standard work flow of PP for images that I post. Comparison of images taken under different lighting conditions would be tough anyway. So, I post process my images to what I think would render them best first before posting.

Some folks on this forum and DPR are attempting to compare the new lens to the 200 f/1.8 or 200 f/2 VR, based on a very few 200 f/2 IS test images posted so far, and without owning any of those lenses.

I'm not sure if that remark was aimed at me PrecisionPhoto. I mean no offence to anyone here, and I do appreciate the circumstances of these shots in particular. My (continuing) point is that I've yet to see 'wow' pictures from what should be a great lens, yet I have seen so many great shots from the 1.8 (which, I'll grant has been around for a lot longer). As someone on the verge of buying a 1.8, your comments about finance are somewhat misplaced.

Like I say, just telling it as I (and evidently Lidesun) see it.....
