out of all my L prime lenses I “Love” this lens most and I use it much more than my 135L. if you are thinking about buying this lens….you should not hesitate….;
I can buy 200L f2 but I am more than happy with this Lens, it is Black and it is Light………!!!
regards……

Is yours tack sharp at 2.8? Mine is more than usable at 2.8, but I need to stop down to 3.2 to have it really shine.

I prefer a 200mm lens to be used at f 2.8 .
My 200 2.8L II is not as sharp as “Zeiss Makro-Planar 2/100 ZE” @ f2.8 but it is as sharp as my 135L @ f 2.8 and I luckily have a very sharp 135 which shines @ f2……;
My copy of 100L is .5% +/- sharper than my 200 2.8.
Kind regards…..

I need a zoom - replacement will be a variety of 70-200 2.8 (except for the IS II.... too pricey)

No other 70 -200 can compete with the sharpness 200 2.8L …except the mkII…….;
Instead of 70-200 mkII I use 85/100/135/200……!!!

Well... duh. But my budget is the lens + CPL + 300 dollars. So sigma 70-200 it is. Unless I can get a 70-200 mkI non-IS.

Wire me $2k and Ill make the prime lineup happen.
