Default Canon EF 200mm f/1.8L USM

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!!!



That's mine.



I can fly!



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!

Lovely shots!

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!

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.
