Nikon AF 80-200mm f/2.8D ED

 

At first after buying this lens I felt a little disappointed as I really wanted the AF-s version which is now discontinued and ended with the AF-D.

fast, sharp, great contrast, lighter than the AF-S, Price ; Remeber this is a Nikon lens and they don't make bad lenses ; Great street cred

Lens Hood optional, £30 GBP, can hunt during auto focus but does have a limiter ; bit of torque whip but nothing discouraging, unless in bright light with a high shutter speed you will need a monopod or tripod but that applies to all types of this lens

I bought this lens in 2/07. I have no complaints about the lens whatsoever. The chromes have excellent contrast, color and sharpness. It feels like a pro lens and looks like a pro lens (crinkle finish) and all. When I put this lens on my F3 or FE2, it...

This lens is everything I was looking for. Tack sharp images even at 200mm. Although it does not have VR sharpness is not a problem. Handheld this lens produced sharp colorful images. I have only done a few test shots outside of some birds and I am...

Tack Sharp Images. Good quality images. Forgiving with shaky hands even though there's no VR. Well Built, has a nice feel to it. Good for bird pictures. Tripod Mount. Manual focus is easy to use and get quality images

Although it's affordable for the quality, 850 is a lot of money. Sometimes on AF it searches too long. No VR

The 80-200mm AF-D lense is an absolutely fantastic lense. I would recommend this to anyone looking to make a step up from the consumer level telephoto zooms. It is now 2 generations behind the current lense in this family, the 70-200mm VR. But it still...

There are so many to mention. Tack sharp images. Very fast AF even on a D50. The 2.8 max aperture allows for high shutter speeds in low light and indoors. I prefer paying less for the 2.8 aperture than several hundred more for the 80-400 VR. The VR...

Since it's a pro lense, it's fairly heavy and large. Not a big issue for me, but I can have a sore neck and arm after shooting landings all day. There is fall off wide open, but it disappears quickly with smaller apertures. At 200mm fall off is...

This is a very sharp lens indeed, used mainly for weddings, portraits, & nature, for the latter it is not quite long enough so i tried it with a converter but it softend it to much for my liking. Other than that i would highly recommend it as a general...

Build quality, pin sharp wide open

Does not like teleconverters, a little heavy if carried about to long
