Think about it this way.  You'd be paying thousands more in order to take pictures where less and less stuff is in focus.  Yes, I know that it is a fantastically sharp lens , but let's not kid ourselves about to the real reason most people lust after the lens.  Super thin DOF/background separation.

Umm, what ?????

Yes, that's why I bought my Canon 200f/2, my Zeiss Otus 55 f/1.4, my Canon 135f/2, my Zeiss 135 f/2, the stupidly thin DOF, what else ???? Well sharpness included of course, all these Lenses have that in spades.

The 200f/2 is I think just about affordable pain, can you or can't you, if you can, that's the end of the debate, once you have it I can pretty well Guarantee you will never get rid of it, well, at least until Canon release the 200f/2 V II.

What's your opinion about the IQ of 200 f2.0 vs. Zeiss 135 f2.0? Do you have any samples to compare the bokeh and sharpness?
