... and a bit overkill, unless one needs also IR and UV using film or a modified digital sensor.
For the price, I'd rather get a 200/2 which has quite good LoCA correction for normal photography and AF of course ;)

I think the poster asked for a macro lens?

The 200mm/2 needs several extension tubes, has a lot of weight, a big size, and is likely still worse in the LoCA department.

Yes, I was just commenting on the price of the Coastal Optics lens.
Shooting the 200/2 with extension tubes does not make much sense. Nevertheless, I did it once (and didn't like the results).


1Dx, 5D2 and some lenses
