  • ... I meant 100-16000 :-( ... iso 16000 is my current pp max, so long as the subject is in focus. Apology offered for any confusion. :-| Cheers... M
  • Replied in 100-64000

    Perhaps, he's inspired by the likes of Lisa Holloway ? Her 'go to' is Canon's 200/2.0. http://ljhollowayphotography.com/in-my-bag/ Cheers... M
  • I understand completely. The DA*200/2.8 I acquired was sold as "used' in excellent condition (with a six month warranty). It was offered by a big name reseller unable to share its history. I ...
