I appreciate your input regarding the Zeiss. I need the AF in the 200mm... I'm hesitating because of the price tag obviously.

These shots were taken many years ago and you still haven't made up your mind? When you first uploaded the link ,years ago, you lead me to believe that you already owned this lens then. Zeiss 135 is lighter and cheaper with similar results.

I do in fact have the 200mm f2.0 VI.. cleanest, sharpest lens I owned or have ever shot.... the images have 'medium format' clarity... certainly a beautiful piece of glass and worth EVERY penny $.02
