Pros: Large maximum opening; Sharpness Blurred Strength Excellent correction of aberrations; Low dispersion lenses; Lightweight and unwieldy to be an F/2.8; Bright colors.

Cons: Lack of tropicalization; Lack of stabilizer.

Opinion: I own this lens from 2012. Bought for astrophotography, so I don't feel the need for the stabilizer. However I also use it for other photographic genres such as landscape and nature. For the landscape I use mounted on the tripod, so I do not need the stabilizer (and if he had I should deactivate it); Useful for isolating a detail. For nature I use it at the minimum distance (adjust the selector) on flowers and other details, as it will result in excellent sharpness and an exciting bokeh. The colors are brilliant. In Astronomy You can consider yourself as a small astrographer. It provides excellent photographs of stellar fields, open clusters, large nebulae. Useful in the photography of conjunctions and eclipses when you also include the landscape. The low dispersion lenses guarantee a very good chromatic aberration correction and very punctiform stars. You feel the lack of tropicalization! Overall a very good goal. Delighted with the choice I made.

Pros: Blurred, sharpened species from f4, construction, size and weight contained

Cons: some copies are soft in TA

Opinion: I take it from Filiberto's review, with which I agree perfectly, I have this lens for a few days and I have to say that I like it. In fact in a kit where there is also a 135 I do not see it, it is a kind of 135L but longer and less sharp at TA that in this case, also given the greater focal length is f2.8 . Excellent to isolate the subject from the surrounding environment which, with wide openings, is completely erased. A very dated lens whose design dates back to 1996 but is appreciated. Today in the age of the super correct there would be no place but I appreciate just that vaguely vintage air that returns especially in the bn. Difficult a fixed 200mm not stabilized, you always shoot at high iso and, if you are around without support, lacks the versatility of a stabilized zoom but is more manageable this fixed and also weighs much less than an f2.8 zoom. Update: I had, over time, 3 copies and I stopped with this latest production 2015 which is by far the best, sharp even at f2.8, difficult to distinguish it from a 135L , the difference between new and used on this lens is small and I would recommend without dubb I'll take it new or cmq recent. If you love lenses with character and need a long focal without gluing a fifth this lens could do for you but if you are looking for a supercorrect and stabilized lens better to turn elsewhere. Considering only this last copy my grade is a full 10.

Pros: Enchanting sharp blur, metal and glass metals

Cons: I honestly did not find it, if I had to find one tropicalization, but all the canonical optics of that time were devoid of it.

Opinion: I possessed this optic a few years ago when I used canon, I made it curious to use it on Sony A7rii with metabones V and sigma mc-11, I have to say that on the sensor sony does a lot but very but very good, it seems made specifically for Mirrorless. a 200mm 2.8 765 gram weighs well. how fast i do not know if and merabout of metabones but fast i afs afc afc and also afc video, and then on sony a stabilized 200mm not a bit. Satisfied .

Pros: Beautiful optics, tonal rendering, sharpness even at full aperture, fairly compact, not heavy, blurry pleasing, great contrast, MAF fast

Cons: I did not find it.

Opinion: I used it on APS-C, Canon D70. I knew well the 200mm f2.8 FD and this goal is its continuation. Optically it's unobtrusive, magnificent, balanced, well-finished, fast autofocus construction. The color rendering is noticeable and in combination with the contrast gives the best files. In his hand he does well and does not feel the absence of the stabilizer, well balanced and proportionate. Well-made, efficient and comfortable hood for positioning in reverse. I put it on sale and I will miss it.

Pros: Blur, sharpen species f4, construction, size and weight.

Cons: At f2.8 it is crisp but not crystal clear, lack of stabilization and weather sealing.

Opinion: Blurred at the top, crisp but not crystal clear to f2.8 (does not hold quite the comparison with the 70 200 2,8II). At 200 you start to feel the lack of the stabilizer, which is not perceived with 135 2. For me it was a hit and run in the sense that I got (used) and resold after ten days, the reason: a 200 fixed it is too binding. I would recommend the 135 2 (sharper, more versatile) or 70 200 4IS (for maximum versatility and quality and at the same time to stay on similar weights and dimensions), but if the problem is not fixed 200 l 'optics is very good.
