Questions: Canon 200mm f2 IS
« on: September 13, 2014, 12:45:59 PM »
Hi guys,
Quick questions for those owning 85L II, 135L and 70-200 f2.8 IS II.

1. Is there room for 200mm f2 IS II to blend in?

2. In what situation do you pull out the 200mm f2 IS II?

3. Did you sell any lenses after 200mm f2 IS purchase? Why?

Thanks in advance
Dylan

Re #2:  Indoor sports.  There is never enough light.  I don't own one yet but I've tried one (and shot in gymnasia with even f/2.8 lenses) enough to want one.

A good image might fit entirely into the histogram, might not.

Are you making purchasing plan for 2015? ;) AFAIK, you said that you have finished buying a new gear for this year. :)

Otherwise, 200mm f/2 should be an awesome lens.

To me, I loved it for portraits if you can get one and work with the focal length. It's amazing for that and for sports.

After playing with 600mm f4, I think I'm happy with my 400mm f2.8 IS II. Kinda like buying three lenses for price of one - 400mm, 560mm and 800mm.

Just likes Jim mentioned "There is never enough light"  ;)

I tried it today at local camera shop. Working with store manager on the pricing ;)
