No worries. I understand, and thank you for taking a moment to post here.
I'm not the OP but when I had mine I used it for sports that were indoors or track & field meets where I could get a field pass and I even used it for a couple of soccer games (it has such great IQ that you can crop it more than any other lens I've used or owned.
The very narrow DOF at f2 is amazing. One time I turned the AF off and set up on a tripod where I could shoot the 2nd hand-off of a 400 meter relay race and just before the first baton transfer I started the motor drive on my D3s and ran off almost 100 shots before the last pass was made. It was pretty impressing seeing someone's face in focus in only one frame or a couple of times in 2 frames.
Thanks for the reply. Now I wish I hadn't even seen this post for sale. The more threads I look at with pics taken with the 200 f2, the more I try to justify selling stuff so I can afford one. I hadn't taken into consideration using it with my TC 14e-II and how sweet the pics are. I hate NAS, lol. Is there a 12 step program?
