200MM 1.8 is the BEST... Way better than 200 2.0...

The 200 2L has less C/A (fluorite element) and amazing IS. I can hand hold pretty consistently down to 1/25 of a sec. I am pretty steady but can't do that with an 85L. Never mind a 200.

I go with P51Mstg, 200mm 1.8 is the best portrait lens ever. there is nothing better. for daily shootings i use the 200mm F2 IS. This is amazing too. But after studying RAW Files, shooting with both 200mm lenses, the truth is, the 200 1.8 has more magic and way better quality in bokeh and sharpness.

Because of the lack of C/A and the IS I prefer the 200 2L but probably the smoothest bokeh in my opinion belongs to the .95 Leica Noctilux for a lens under 300mm.
