2/200 for sport&eyelashes
11

Love my 2/200 on the D810. It was a real investment, but expecting decent price if need to sell I talked myself into it.

Seeing the results I have no regret - in fact it's my only lens that's fast enough for at least some keepers at indoor sports and has sharp images wide open.

Wonderful optic the 200 f2. Both with D850. And not only sports and people - the 200 f2 works very well on whiskers too

D850 f5.6 ISO 2800

D850 f2.8 ISO 280

My wallet literally jumps out of my pocket, runs, and hides even if I breathe "need 200/2."   Esp the VRII version.  Every shot Ive seen with it, my jaw drops with awe.

I love my 200 f2 on the D750, it seem there's no place dark enough for this combo.

I guess most people who buy this lens are good photographers and not beginners - who choose would explain why all photos seen from the lens are good.

well done on getting a decent shot of your Dobie, awsome looking dogs

i'm lucky if i can get either of our 2 to stop still long enough for a pic, they seem to sense just as you're about to shoot & move lol

Thanks !!  I took many shoots of her with a 70-200 2.8,  but she was scared of the big Glass on the 200 f2.  lol. She wouldn't look at the camera !!
