Pros: f1.8 - nicknamed "eye of Sauron"

Cons: to be honest no one, but if we want to be picky it lacks IS and weight

Opinion: An optics that I wanted a lot. I started from 135/2, I added 35L first version (which in my opinion is magical) and 85 art that splits the hair. Here we are on another level. Found used by RCE Verona and bought within 3 hours. I had it sent by a friend in Genoa who did not hesitate to tell me that I am outside like a balcony (inexplicably) and I put my paws on it last Christmas. So far I have made two outings, both with my 3-year-old dwarf but the second time there was also the 14-year-old cousin who collaborates much more. The results are really spatial, do not beat a shot: with the 1Dx 95% of photos in focus, the rest is my heir who does not cooperate, with the cousin I did not miss a shot. Also tried on 1DsmkIII and there the spa complexionHolds, you adjust the color temperature the rest is magic. It weighs 3Kg but the problem is relative, with series 1 it is quite well balanced despite the mammoth front lens (slightly smaller than that of the 500/4 IS1). The first time you hold the tripod collar positioned forward for a while, but just turn it to the right side and then you can no longer feel it. The only real defect found regarding the weight is the transportability: in my opinion it is necessary to attach the strap to the optics because with the machine around the neck in my opinion the risk of tearing the nozzle is there, and wandering around the park to look for the light is uncomfortable, moreover the tripod ring is very short and you can not even use handle type, the only solution that has come to mind so far is to mount a long ark plate (type for the 300) in order to carry it easily. Conclusion: A dream in all respects. it made me want to shoot again, now I only need volunteers to realize a new idea that is whipping through my head.

Pros: It's an extraordinary goal

Cons: The only real one against it is that it is no longer possible to repair it, if it skips the focus by wire it is impossible to seal by hand.

Opinion: It is a very valuable optics, built very well. I read who speaks of sharpness not at the top. apart from that when it comes to "extreme" optics and pieces of history from one of the world's largest optical manufacturers, it's probably a phrase that probably makes little sense in itself, Plus, at least as far as my copy is concerned, there are no visible differences with medium canvases of successive generations known for their great sharpness (I usually use medium canvases designed almost thirty years later as Sigma 105/1.4 or Zeiss 135/2) indeed it could also be a hair better. It has flanked a 180/2 summicron that is not afraid for sharpness at TA, the best color correction of the leica is balanced and perhaps surpassed by the best microcontract of the canon. On the very thin focus and Sony's 61mpix sensor that I use it with, believe me to be crisp throughout the frame and at any distance. The images are really great, ready with minimal PP adjustments. The strength of the medium canvases of this focal length so bright (actually the plural used to understand less bright lenses because of 200 1.8 standard product there is only him) in the portrait is the separation of the medium-distance planes with "tight" angle, from the half bust to the whole figure, in this setting shows off a bokeh that is perhaps the best I have ever seen. Not only that, color balance and macrocontracting are almost perfect. It's a 200 f1.8 with which you can do everything (at least I do everything) in TA thanks to the AF that for the portrait is great even with sony (with a7RIV the good eye is almost always in focus). Regarding the AF on sony with mc-11 I have to say that in the pursuit of fast-moving subjects the performance did not seem exhilarating, if someone wanted to use it for indoor sport maybe it would be better a Canon body. but I'm talking about things I don't know thoroughly by not doing indoor sports and never having tried a canon-rank digital body. Then as for weight, center of gravity forward etc etc. are all things that for those interested in these kinds of objects do not have the slightest sense.

Pros: Excellent lens, light and refined. Construction of merit and unfocused alive and particular.

Cons: Detail not just the TOP. The lenses contain lead and motor usm used is of the first generation, with small brushes consumables ...

Opinion: Held for five long years, I got to try and understand it. Given away only to replace it with the new Canon 200 f / 2 l is.rnrnSi looks good, despite his age '. Much sought after and prized by enthusiasts and collectors around the world, which highlight the qualities and the quality '. The construction and 'solid and fulmineo.rnrnCome AF for each lens a bit' dated, although of excellent craftsmanship suffers his age '... the motor usm first generation suffers from the need' to periodic maintenance, because small brushes that wear over time and the detail and 'good but definitely not at the level of its predecessor, that' the new Canon 200 f / 2 l is.rnrnConsigliato to those who want to have a lens and scope of pregio.rnrnrn
