While I mostly use my 200mm 2.8, this lens comes with me when I'm on long walks, due to it's very light weight and compact dimensions.
Image quality is spot on, even at max aperture, very sharp with pleasing colour and contrast. Internal focussing and built in hood are the icing on the cake.
So if the shallow DOF is not your main criteria, then the F4 version of the FD 200 is a bargain basement must have.
I'm using this lens on the front of a Lumix G1 and its an excellent tool. Despite its age (maybe because of?) it handles very well and is a joy to use. I can only use it in manual mode on the micro 4/3rds body but that just adds to the pleasure.
Images are sharp and detailed even wide open and it shows good contrast and colour.
I'd forgotten just how good these FD lenses could be and at the current market price they are an absolute bargain
