Featured: Fellow Nikkor 200mm f2 User

Here is a message I received on my Flickr account from photographer Petr Brodik.  Petr had contacted me last year and I recommended the Nikkor 200f2 AI-s lens to him.  This was his reply I received a few days ago –

“Hi Matt,

I never really thanked you for pushing me ofer the edge. I took your advice, went through with the purchase and buying this lens was the best thing I’ve ever done as a photographer. I’ve just finished making topic on mflenses.com and I thought I’d give you some credit, because I’d had a really hard time deciding.


Thanks a lot, mate!


When I saw the results Petr had achieved with his 200mm f2 I was blown away.  The lens creates jaw dropping bokeh so works really well for half body/ headshot portraits or as Petr has shown dog portraits!  Petr’s work has inspired me to use my Nikkor 200mm f2 lens more even though I now use mainly Leica.  I might do some 35mm Kodak colour film bokeh Potraits with my Nikon FM once the leaves are on the trees 🙂  Enjoy.
