no, the reason why the 2nd shot has smoother bokeh is because the subject is closer to the 135L, Get closer to the duck with 70-200 @200mm and the background will be butter smooth.
Correct... But you are missing my point which I clarified twice now. I know they are not apples to apples comparisons, but at the time they are the quick examples I have dug up to show what I mean, even if not equal.
I have both lenses now and for bokeh, the 135L wins for pure creaminess, especially with cluttered backgrounds. My point is the 70-200 with busy backgrounds does not always do so well, while the 135L does a much better job.
I will see if I have better examples or make a comparison myself.
