these must have been taken with your (Canon) DSLR - too good for the MTF
eeeee youv'e got strong arms
the 200/2.8 is not too bad to hand hold... I purchased a manfrotto
lens support just in case I wanted/ needed to put it on a tripod.
So far I haven't found it necessary. Like my dad, I even have a
slight tremor that comes and goes..... so I'm not the poster boy
for solid lens handling.
Once you cradle the lens in your hand (the balance point) the
handling is easy. I'm sure that most of these shots were at 2.8.
Hodad, great shots... I just got this one... Haven't had a chance to use it yet...
Here are some pictures taken with the Canon FD 200mm f2.8 IF on the E-M5, first some taken at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed, most of them were stopped down to f5.6 or f8 to get some DoF and longer shutter speed, then pre-focused and the drive mode set to 9fps...
First a picture of John Surtees, the first and so far only driver/rider to win world driver's titiles on both motorcycles and F1 (1964)
Ferrari F1 car from 2011, driven by one of the test drivers...
The 2011 McLaren F1 car driven by one of the test drivers:
The 1977 Renault F1 car, the first ever turbo charged F1 car...
1998 McLaren MP4-13 driven by Nick Heidfeld
1990 Leyton House Judd, the car that made current F1 designer/engineer Adrian Newey famous...
1985 Arrows A8 with the insane BMW Turbo engine
1991 Jordan 191, Michael Schumacher's debut car:
The 1986 Lotus 98T, which Ayrton Senna drove to victory in som races that season:
A chapman era Lotus, the brilliantly simple 72..
And now for something completely different, went on a trip with Hurtigruten (Norwegian Coastal Voyage) The first of these is from Vesterålen, where we met a fishing boat:

Great photos Eirik!
Canon FDn 200mm f/2.8 at close range
I tested this lens against a 200mm FD f/4 SSC model and found that the f/4 SSC actually had a slight advantage in contrast and resolution at most apertures, and was also a little better at controlling chromatic aberration. But the f/2.8 has the extra stop at each end of the aperture range, half-stop settings, and a closer focusing distance, which are nice attributes. Where the 2.8 really shined, however, was at its closest focusing distances, where is seemed to have a sweet spot. Here's one shot I liked taken with Lumix GH2. I ended up selling the f/4 SSC and keeping the f/2.8.
Wide open, f2.8. Lens has a some fungus stars inside, but otherwise is bright. Sadly, it can't stop down from f2.8.
You don't want anything growing fungus inside it near your other lenses or attached to your camera. Fungus bringeth spores and spores like to spread! Dirt in a lens just affects itself, but fungus is a growing, spreading threat to the rest of your equipment.
this FD 200mm f2.8 or the Nikon 180mm f2.8 ED , that's my question.
They go for the same price here?
