Re: Pity Zeiss does not decide to offer a 200mm or a 300mm

Only the very expensive zoom, I'd love to have, if I could...

As much as I like Zeiss, I don't think they could compete with Nikon and Canon in the supertele segment. There's a lot of experience and know-how involved in building these very large lenses, image stabilization and super-fast AF included. Nikon and Canon superteles have reached a very high standard both optically and regarding IS and AF with the 200/f2 and the 300/f2.8 lenses probably being the best of them all.
