Hi everyone,

I have just noticed that the click points on the tripod mount are off-centre. Am I being daft or is something not right here?!? Lol!

Probably going to send mine off to 'The Lens Doctor' to have a once over - anyone had experience with him? Is it gonna cost the earth???

Hey guys,

I'm looking for a donor 200mm f1.8. I have one which works perfectly in terms of the electornics and mechanics but the body is slightly warped. I know that these lenses are known for the USM failing and as they are no longer supported by Canon, I figured there must be a bunch of them in the world somewhere which are damaged and just sitting around. If anyone has a donor, I'd be interested in buying it. So let me know what you've got.

Thanks!

Mike

Nothing like watching wolves with a bokeh monster in your hands.

I haven't posted for a while. This is by far the best lens in my bag. Playing fetch with the dogs the other day here in Houston. On the second pic, you can see the ball (near to me) dog (focal point in Servo mode) and fence in background.
