J.A Blix - thank you :) I have to admit I crave the lovely 200/2 IS but my "cheap" 200/2.8 still delivers great results even compared to my favorite 135/2.

A couple from the last weekend, both shot wide open, still the DOF is sufficient, the bokeh pleasing and the AF springy:

First result using my recently purchased 2nd hand copy of this lens combined with the 2nd hand 50D that arrived today in the mail.

Straight from the Camera, no PP. Fading light needed F2.8, 1/320s 400ASA......Pretty sharp I reckon, happy with that.

Thank you :)
Well, I got the 100L with the intention to shoot macro but with two small kids and a chronic lack of patience I almost never come close to a true macro shot. I do a lot of flowers with the 100L, cause it's a nice way to relax and an occasional close up portrait of a baby (the 100L AF is too slow for a running toddler on my 5D3)

Graham - looks great to me, given thre's not any additional sharpening! Enjoy ot!

Very good I would say.
Take a look at the photos taken with this lens and make your own decision.

I wasn't sure if it was a rhetorical question? :oops:

My copy gives me a rather unusually stripey effect across the circles. But I like it.

I checked back looking for it in other folks' shots and while I can see it in some, it doesn't seem quite as pronounced?

These are small, but the ones out there are far away.

I'm not used to rhetorical questions in forums posts. :D
With question mark I take it as a normal question.

Maybe that water makes it more visible than in some other situations.

You're probably right - I wasn't sure ;)

I get the stripes in the dry as well...

Plus 2x TC...

That bokeh is different than what I have in this picture but...
Do you also have it in this kind of situations?
And do you get same kind of results with and without 2xTC?

Just interested to know because I haven't seen that in my pictures yet.

Yes to the with and without 2X TC, as the wagtail shot shows. However, it isn't in all shots...

So, more obvious when distance to subject is longer and the circles are smaller...
