;) This will be a very short thread, as not too many have this lens.
But if you do, please post some picture and let us have a look.;)

Here you go. These are all with a 1DM2N, 200L f/1.8 w/TC1.4, f/2.5, 1/500, ISO1600. This is all far end court action, shot from the opposite end baseline. You can get a feel for how touchy the depth of field is, even at f/2.5.

The background is what you pay for.

Drawing a foul... in action.

I can hold my breath longer than you.

Ahh!!!

Can't forget the cheerleaders.

Not a great picture... wish I was on the other end of the court, but this is a FOUL, baby!

I don't even remember why they were screaming. I was following the player and in review I found that I kind of missed him and caught the cheerleaders being very moved by something going on.

Thanks for the comments. I haven't used the TC on this lens that much, but the lighting was a little better so I gave it a whirl. I was about a stop underexposed by doing that, but adjusted in PS. I shoot JPEG, and other than exposure adjust and crop/sharpen... nothing else was really done to these. I did adjust the color a little in two of them.... I don't like to spend a lot of time at the computer on the images.

Oh, and I almost forgot... double overtime game and I was shooting handheld with this lens, and swapping to another body with an 85 1.8 when they came to my end.

Excuse me while I wipe the drool off my desk...

Talk about creamy bokeh and incredible sharpness. It truly doesn't get any better.

I don't own this lens but I had the chance to use it at the zoo one day. Awkward size, but an amazing lens.

This shot is taken through wire mesh, with wire mesh in the background, f/2.5. You can seen how clear the lion is and the wire mesh back and foreground melt away!

Holy Macaroni! I've read in the FM reviews that this lens has been discontinued:( ...WHY? I know I'd want to buy it given that I have the money. Did another lens replace it that I don't know about?

Nope. No replacements. There have been rumors of a replacement for a few years but they seem to be just that. KEH has 4 of them used. Pick your price. Starting at around $3100 and going to just over $3900.
