  • Replied in Hogne - thanks
    Thanks for spending time on this interesting comparison ! One must not forget the other attribute of the 200 f/2 : its lightning-quick AF, something that the 105 f/1.4 does not have in same ...
  • What a wonderful collection of pics, nearly all at f/1.4 - nice ! I am finding the 105 f/1.4 completely absorbing after a few days, mostly because of 1/ the ability to shoot consistently sharp ...
  • Replied in 28-105
    Agree w/ Earthbound and Michael/B, the 28-105 is a great lens. Not sure that it is being made anymore. I bought mine in 2000-ish, I think, a very solid performer in its price range. The feature ...
  • Replied in Morocco
    Nice pic - you must be getting some stares :-) Spent some good times hitching in Morocco I can still taste the mint tea . . .
  • Replied in Need or Want
    There is a big difference betw 105mm and 200mm, just as there is a big difference betw need and want :-) Sadly, I am a person who finds it difficult to overcome my lens lust, ( the intensity of ...
  • Great comment re replacing the foot, can't believe I forgot that one :-) It was one of the first things I did with the 200 f/2 VR.  The RRS foot makes a really useful, industrial strength handle ...
  • Congrats on the 200 f/2, it's a lifelong addiction :-) Agree w/ Hogne - there is a huge amount of comment over the past decade ( initially version I, and also V II ), so allocate a few hours for ...
  • I remember when you could walk into KEH in person - those were the days :-) Spent several decades in Atlanta . . . Nice pic
  • The 105mm f/2 is a superb lens with a couple of caveats :-) Don't be seduced by the DC feature. Easy to use/change but any effect is almost unnoticeable in use. The lens produces lovely bokeh ...
  • Martyn I agree, re cash . . . Have found 85mm to be a tad short on FX and while I love my 105 f/2 and 135 f/2, the f/1.4 on 105mm is the clincher :-) I am thinking to sell the 85 G to part finance ...
