    Stunning lens. Sharper at f4 than my Nikkor 200mm AIS at f8. The bokeh is wonderful amd the lens is light and easy to focus. No CA anywhere.

    Shot this today @ f4 and cropped 200%

    I don't often recommend vintage zooms to anyone; but if I do, this is the one to go with. A great design with a flourite element and a UD element; Canon created a zoom that rivalled their primes with this one. It's also one of the rare lenses that's usually cheaper on KEH than it is on eBay.

    Legacy lenses are great on then E-M1, and I've used the vivitar series 1 70-210, and the Tokina 60-300. The vivitar is so heavy and that makes getting a good shot without blur very challenging. The Tokina is lighter and has little CA. Buyt the Canon L is in another league entirely. What a lenses!

    I recently bought the 2x-B doubler and had expected it to dramatically reduce IQ but it does only in low contrast situations. In good light or with a flash, the 2x-B with the 80-200 yields a full frame POV of 320-800 with excellent sharpness, no CA, and you can hand hold it with IBIS.

    I had explored buying the Olympus 75-300 II in preparation for a few trips to Africa this year. But then I took the 80-200 f4 L to the Bronx Zoo today. It was overcast and cold. Lighting conditions could not be worse. But the results were pretty good and I shot exclusively at f4, often through glass and at ISO 500-1600.

    Its one of those Canon gems. Excellent shots and that last one is just magic !!

    All the best and another one is the 100-300 F/5.6L if you can put up with F/5.6.
