Some day, good sir... Some day... With that said... Here's one with the newly acquired Canon 5DsR... The bull dancer was actually doing arm/hand movements, but at 1/2000sec it froze that movement with ease...

Stopped in her Tracks - Designer D.Zapata Couture - Canon 5DsR + 200 1.8L - ISO 640, f/1.8 @ 1/2000sec...

Designer D.Zapata's interpretation of a female bull fighter is clearly shown with this beautiful, color studded jacket worn by model Jasmin... Canon 5DsR + 200 1.8L... ISO 500, f/1.8 @ 1/640sec... Click on the link below for the full 50mp view... Focus point was on the left eye... It's crazy how you can see the fine hairs on her chin and upper lip, as well as the stretched saliva inside her mouth... KUH-RAY-ZEE amount of detail...

Thats the image sensor bro. The lens helps but the 200/2 gave me close to the same detail.

Just a tool. I can buy another one anytime I want.

In the world of GAS hobbyist extreme the key to success is never look back. No lie.

Sadly my own condition, though G.A.S. related, is also very steeped in youthful "have not" "pack rat-ism", and using collection as a salve.

It is nothing short of miraculous that this lens, the f/1.8, so long the ultimate object of my G.A.S. affliction, has managed to be "let go" by me,... TWICE!

I must be growing up! :)

The first time (2008) resulted in me "securing" the woman that became my wife! So no regrets there. A reasonable trade to be sure :)

When finances swung back into my favor I got one again. That one i sold too, but to be fair, only after two years of owning it side by side with the newer f/2,. and being unable to part with either. I finally did it to help fund the 500mm f/4L II which I use MUCH more often.

If I only I could own them all, even they were just on shelf! (but wouldn't that be a shame too? Better that someone is using it!)

That's how I feel. I gave it up because my long lens I really need to be able to track so I swapped it out in a trade for the 70-200 2.8 GM and 85 1.4 GM plus cash. It was a fair trade. I'm moving to sony for awhile. If Canon comes out with something comparable to the A7R3 then I'll switch back perhaps who knows.

If I was just doing portraits then I would of kept the 200/2 but I really need native tracking capabilities so the 70-200 is my compromise.

Good thing is it's really sharp and the AF is spot on and the R3 has some awesome resolution that surpasses the 5D4. Had the 5DsR been able to ISO up to 50k and shoot 10fps I would of stayed with Canon.
