Re: 200mm f/2

I appreciate this discussion, and have enjoyed seeing the images posted. I would never carry such a lens to work with me, at my present job, but may well someday acquire such a thing of beauty, in order to use during my personal time, as an antidote to the negativity of the Job. (I do not claim to be a professional photographer, but shoot evidentiary/forensic images as part of my police patrol job, mostly with a 100mm macro, and an ultra-wide zoom.)

It would have been wonderful to possess a 200/2 when my son was a child! (That would have been in the time of the AI-S version, I reckon.) Alas, I used very cheap cameras then.

I wear a badge and pistol, and make evidentiary images at night, which incorporates elements of portrait, macro, still life, landscape, architecture, and PJ. I enjoy using both Canons and Nikons.
