Hi Superbaguy

I also drooled over 200mm f2 after hearing so many wonderful reports... until I bought a used one for myself!

Yes, it is sharp, has lovely bokeh etc, but it is BIG, ungainly and you do NOT have the zooming convenience of the lesser lenses.

So get the big lens for max everything, and you have to run up and down instead of zooming, or get an excellent zoom lens that will satisfy most people (same for the comparison with 180mm f2.8)...

God bless,

Friedrich von Hörsten
