I wanted to see what kinda detail i can get with the 200/4

shoot it again at F8 iso200, see what you get.

Why would it make a big difference ? This is with a bounced flash,I stopped it down to increase its depth of field which is very narrow as you can see

Becauase if youre interested in detail, loss of sharpness due to diffraction at F16 and ISO400 isn't going to be ideal. You're better off with more flash, ISO64, at F8. That is where you will see real detail.

I’ll see what I get tomorrow, when filling most of the frame with the subject the depth of field is very shallow ( it’s a macro lens) ,it can stop down to f45

I know if I tried this at the minimum focusing distance of the 200/2 which is around 6’ I wouldn’t get the same amount of detail

ill post results tomorrow from both lenses, I’ll open the window blinds too this time.
