Does an 80-200 count at 200mm?

If so, this one was shot at 200mm with my FA*80-200/2.8, mounted on my K-1:

Here are some examples with the M200 F/4 that I got from another forum member.
2 Sparrows at f 8
Cat ear cropped, f8 with flash.
lavender at f8
then Lavender with Raynox 150 at f16.
Even at F16, DOF is pretty small as I found when the wind moved the lavender. The M200 still has good contrast as you can see by the image of the camo sparrows.

K-3 and DA* 200

It's not often shooting with the 200 you have to bend over whole lot. It's a nice standup lens.

I love 200mm. Works well for dog portraits when I have a space to let him roam off leash.

Just for you guys, I walked out to the feeders today with the K-1 and DA*200, there were some friendly birds that were tolerating my presence. Regardless of the cost of long lenses, close with a shorter lens is better than a longer lens further away, if the critters are friendly/

Chickadee


Downey Woodpecker


Tess has been telling me, the woods are full of Pine Siskins up on the ridge. Today a group made it down to the feeders.

I have two 200mm lenses. The first is the Super Takumar 1:4


















The other is an Auto Vivitar 200mm f3.5
















The Vivitar is a little more prone to PF but it's a little faster and will focus several feet closer than the Super Tak. Both are (imho) good lenses.

Scooby and me... playing with a mirror pulled out of the old house. First time Scooby had seen his reflection. Both shots with the K-1 and DA* 200/2.8

First shot is Scoob posturing and being a bit unsure about the "other" dog doing the same thing he was. The fuzzy stuff on the right is Scooby, I was focused on his reflection. Cropped, flipped, etc...


Second shot is the finished mirror selfie.
