Really nice Lisa. We can never justify any of this stuff but this lens is truly one of Canons very best and certainly in a different league than the 85L and in your hands in a league of its own.

I shoot all the time wide open and always amazed at the sharpness and amazing bokeh.
Congrats and really a great tool in your hands.

And I to agree that this lens is above the rest. I own both the 85L and the 200 2L and as good as the 85L is, its not in this league.

Very nice photos, even exceptional though I still would prefer the 200L f/2 predecessor the 200 f/1.8.

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

The 1.8 doesn't have IS or a fluorite element to control C/A? I prefer the f/2...

If my wife spent that serious amount of money it would need to completely justified and give some serious return, - you have achieved both, the images here are simply stunning. Congrats on pushing the bar even higher for us mere mortals to aspire to !


Tons of enthusiasm, loads of kit, limited skill...

Didn't need Fluorite, it had several pounds of LEAD baby! I don't recall ever being aware of CA on the 1.8

The tests show the 2 being lower in C/A.

Lead is cool....

Also the 1.8 is better than most anyhting in the Canon line up. I just think with IS and fluorite the 2 is just a step better.

Thank you everyone. :) I've only used this at 2.0 so far (have to push it's limits) and I haven't noticed even a tiny hint of CA in any of my photos. The 85L is really bad with CA so this was a nice surprise.

Those are very, very nice. I would love to see a comparison between the 200 @ 2.0 and the 70-200 at 200 F/2.8. I imagine they look almost identical. (I have never shot with the 200 2.0 so when I say imagine its just that)

As I have gushed on the FB site Lisa, I am always blown away by your talents! Wished I lived closer to you, I would take a class in a second!


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

Mmm, trying to justify NOT buying a 200/2.0? :D
