p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · 180mm f/2.8D - Offical Image Thread


I picked up a 180mm f/2.8D used on the buy & sell forum here last week. I've been thinking about this lens for a long time and finally pulled the trigger. I'm already over the moon. I'd love to see what others shooting this lens are getting!

180mm f/2.8D on D800, Hoya ProND16 4 stop ND filter, 26" hexabox with one speedlight.

Also would love to see more shots with this lens since the 200/2 is out of my price range.

Would love to see a comparison between this an the 70-200 2.8 at 180-200mm wide open. I wonder which is sharper and better bokeh.

I did a test a while back between the 200 f2, 180, and 70-200 VR2. The 180 is sharper than the 70-200 wide open.

I may dig up some of those photos.

This lens also pairs very well with the Metabones Speed Booster on m43 (I've tried the 0.71x). Excellent resolution and rendering, and with IBIS, you can handhold it outdoors surprisingly late into the evening. Try it if you have access to that combination.

I love this lens. Light, sharp wide open and a built in hood takes me back to the old days.

Please do so. I'd love to see what's difference between them, if you can trade versatility of 70-200 to less sharper results or not.

All of these are on a tripod at about 10-15 feet away. Notice the 70-200 is at 180mm but the focus breathing is still very noticeable.

Looking back at these I wonder if the 180 was a touch front focused on the close ups. The close ups I think were taken at minimum focusing distance of each lens.

And it really makes me miss my 200 f2.

Thanks Nathan for those,

I did not expect zoom lens to perform that good vs primes. Differences are visible but very small.

Hmmm.
So, the first page of a nice easy going image thread is photobombed with a massive test photo post with bogus data.

Good idea. Hopefully will be as active as the 200mm but highly unlikely. According to many, D lenses don't cut it. I love mine and I found it quite versatile though my extensive use of it was with much older DX cameras(D200, D2h, D2X, etc). Although my shooting habits have since changed, a topic like this might result in it getting much more action.

Some blasts from my past(D200, D2h)

I have this lens and the 200 F2. Both are quite good. I haven't done many side by sides though it is on my to-do list. Certainly the 180 is sooooo much more portable, and its a great value. In many situations I think the 180 and 200F2 would be hard to differentiate the results from. But if you are shooting sports then obviously the speed of the 200 is hard to beat.

Anyway, a couple samples from a fairly recent session:

Here are a couple bird shots - I should have shot the rooster at 1/1000 and not wide open arpeture.
