They look excellent. I have the 100mm version of this lens, bought it new with my Canon T90 back in the 80's

This was taken with my Canon EOS-M

100mm and 200mm macro lenses are different. 200mm goes to 1:1 magnification on it's own, 100mm goes to 1:2 , it need matching macro tube to go 1:1 , as does 50mm macro

I have the 50mm tube for mine, which enables me to use it as a macro, or a standard 100mm lens.

Nice shots, I look forward to seeing more shots with this 200.

there will be plenty shots with this lens, especially now that my usual macro hunting grounds, local botanical garden is finally open after the winter

Looks good.

Looks like a nice, sharp lens. A bit of longitudinal CA in the shot of the white flower, but it's not bad. I expect the extra working distance and narrow angle of view of the 200mm is nice to have.

Very nice shots! I have the 100mm FD macro and a 55mm f/3.5 Micro Nikkor, and the Vivitar 135mm f/2.8 CF, but no 200mm macros yet. It's up there close to the top of my want list -- just wish they all weren't so danged expensive.

And while I can get down to 1:1 with my 100mm and tube, the 200mm has a much better offset from the subject than the 100 does, which makes for more interesting shots.very often
