The isolation on this lens is insane! It's like the 135L on steroids.

Personally I am thinking this is the best CANON lens ever made. It is a shame Canon stopped manufacturing this lens in 2004 :( Autofocus and bokeh is insane !!! Newer version of this lens Canon 200mm F 2.0 is not near good as Canon 200mm F 1.8 !!!

That's amazing light. Your subject is well lit and the background is nice and airy looking without being too blown out. Gives the whole image a beautiful pastel quality.

Nice job seeing it!

So what's the difference between this lens and the 70-200 f2.8 mark 3 that I have? Why would I want to own one?

In a nutshell... Image compression at f/1.8 at 200mm... It's something to behold... And unless you've physically seen it first hand, the comparison is unique... Don't get me wrong, the 7-2L IS is a wonderful piece of glass... Hell, I still have/use the Mark 1 version... But when it comes to having a bit more IQ, that extra 1-stop hard to beat...

Thanks, it seems to be a good bargain on the used market.
