Bought a "new" A 200mm prime and gave it a workout the other day. Came across a rare bird for our area. Don't know why it's called a blue grouse, as I couldn't see any blue in its colouring.
This lens is plenty sharp, but the focus is off as far as using the"in focus" indicator goes. Have to trust my eyes instead of the infocus green spot I usually use when manually focusing- which also means I can't trap the shot using AF. Tried that quite a few times, and they were all out of focus. Can a prime lens like this need calibrating?. Anyway, here's some samples of my first outing with this lens.....Don

I believe the males have more blue/grey color on their back, but they are still not blue.

Nice shots with the 200mm.
