Doppelgänger! Though I got my Elan IIe and 70-200/2.8L a little earlier.

Awesome bokeh, too. But the heavy part. The weight didn't bother me at all in my younger days, but in my dotage I find myself using the lightweight EF 55-250 f/4-5.6 IS STM more often. But for portraits, oooh I pull out the big ole 2.8L.
