Review - Canon EF 200 f/2L IS

<< < (2/9) > >>

Great review, to the point, capures the 'feel' of the lens.

This one is on my list of 'wants', along with the 300/2.8 II.  Owning one supertele makes me want more!


I added the "Lens Review" page in my favorite. LOve the reviews

Craig (CR Guy), Nice shot of 'Little CR Guy' - I recall seeing this in the store in Owen Sound - really nice 16x20 print!

What are your other two favourite lenses? I dream of owning this one day...

Craig there's a Lens Gallery thread for the 200/2.0 that you may want to link to.

The image quality, one f-stop advantage, 5-stop of IS and ability to separate subject from background makes this my favorite lens.

My complaint is that Canon did not make this a f/1.8 like the discontinued 200/1.8 (1989-2004).

Some may argue that 5-stop of IS would make up for the 1/3rd f-stop light loss but IS does not allow more light in to stop subject motion.

I noticed a typo in the review.  Look at the very top you have "Review – Canon EF 200 f/2L IS" then right underneath you have "Review – Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II (Tilt-Shift)"

Or maybe it was intended to be that way?
