These were taken at 200mm, unfortunately I had the ISO set to 800 by mistake on the first 3.
I sometimes do that intentionally Richard
It'll often help give you an OLD Film look
Making it perfect for some landscapes, buildings, and yes even flowers.

something bad about the M200 F4

I think we all missed the point here. Peter wanted to hear something bad about the 200mm F4. OK here goes, Its not an F2.5

Seriously, I have looked several times at K and M 200F4's (I know where 2K and 1 M are sitting at present) but they just don't interest me. Could it be that if I want 200mm, I take either my series 1 70-210F3.5 or my Sigma 70-200 F2.8?

I am not sure this helps, but my approach is that any K mount lens has to be Faster or at least as fast but much smaller, than my newer high quality zooms.

If you look at my manual focus primes, 24mm F2.5, 50mm F1.4, 105mmF2,8, 135mmF2.5 300mmF4, 400mm F5.6 they are all reasonably fast, and the 105 F2.8 is the only one that is not at least 1/2 stop faster than anything else I own in that focal length.

LOL! But surely you can add some noise post-process?

It's something I want to experiment with, particularly because I love the look of 30's and 40's news photographs.
