Merry Christmas and happy new year to everyone from me as well.

Here's a shot from yesterday , 200 @ f2. Spring weather in December, not complaining!

Looks like you solved the issues with the 200f/2 Viggo, Lovely shot, Lovely Child as well.

Thanks a lot Edward! Yeah, it was properly serviced that AF, and I started tweaking and trying with the AF set up, and using 4 point expansion seems to be a winner along with some on the go adjustments. Man, it's sharp! lol.

Another 1DX and 600mm IS II combination. The Desert fox was running close to 50 km/h. (Based on the  speedometer). It stopped for couple of seconds started to run in the opposite direction.  It has been a challenge to take the shot hand held. These guys are really fast and I was lucky to get them under evening golden light. This was Photographed at Wild Ass Sanctuary in Gujarat, India.

As always, beautiful photo eml58 ;)

With 400mm f2.8 IS II, I think I'll be thinner end of next year. Another way to lose weights ;D

Yeah, it does look like it, but the compression from 200 isolates the subject better and it's waaaaaay sharper wide open (no secret there) plus it AF's. lol. But sometimes shooting the 200, I miss the 85 for sure.

The "compression" from the 200 is exactly the same as the compression from the 85 if shot from the same place, to get the same framing then just crop the 85 shot. The 200 f2 will give you narrower dof than the 85 when wide open at the same subject distance, and give you more pixels on target, but so does a 200 f2.8.

Not saying the 200 f2 isn't an awesome lens, just pointing out that lenses do not make "compression" that is perspective, and perspective is made by position alone.

I don't get that, a telephoto compresses the subject and background more than a wider lens, no? A tree in the background seem closer to the subject with a tele than with a wide angle. I thought that the compression of the subject  and perspective has very much to do with the focal length?

The persepctive to me, wouldn't look the same with the 85 shot closer, but maybe I just don't get you meant..

If you make the shot from exactly the same position with the two lenses and crop the 85 image to match the 200 image, they would look exactly the same. But if you move in closer to the subject with the 85, to get exactly the same framing, the perspective would be wider with the 85.
