I have acquired this legendary beast last month. Managed to use it in couple of my last bike races at the end of the season. I have also spent few days to correct one of the known back focusing issue with the lens at 200mm. Is more involved than just adjusting the AF tune setting. Now, is tack sharp at all focal lengths, wide open. Let's see some of your shots from this lens. This lens is probably the most budget pro 80-200 zoom you can ever buy from Nikon...although is a much older design and a much older lens. Shame on Nikon for not producing a non VR f4 or f2.8 70-200 zoom.

Love mine (2 ring) even though I rarely use it and it's a beater. Mine has missing focus limiter switch, loads of internal dust, a bit of fungus and a bent mount and the aperture ring is jammed, fortunately locked on f22

These are on D800, all wide open.

i just got my OG 80-200mm 2.8 (pre-D) a few days ago. I am heading out for 3 days starting Sunday, so will hopefully have something. It is snowing up in the mountains now, and fall color is FANTASTIC this year!

Looking forward to it. I have to admit it...these pro lens (pre AFS) takes some serious tweaking to work well with today's DSLRs, unless you happen to have a good copy. I have been tweaking it, physically realigning the front element, so that the lens is tack sharp wide open in all focal lengths. The compromise is that the lens becomes back focusing at 200mm with a shooting distance under 10ft.

Sometimes the long lasting threads just take a while to take off. Give it time.

I finally cleaned up the rest of the lens element blocks by the aperture section. Did some test shots (another set) at the local botanic garden. Gee...I think I may have been captured by the NYC speeding camera. If so, this is some expensive test shots...

All shots either at f2.8 or f3.5

This thread needs a bump. Shots from this morning. A horse show in the New York Equestrian Center in Long Island. Shooting my niece mostly...All wide open. Missed a handful of shots which I didn't think the lens would have issues with. ISO 1600 and higher. 1/320s. D7000. Could have used 1/400s.

It was a great lens for me as well; I used it and beat it up and it kept on ticking for thousands of photos in all sorts of hellish weather (welcome to photojournalism). I wore out the lens mount, lol. Only sold it because I got two good deals on an AF-S model and then a 70-200mm f2.8 VRII. Frankly the advantage of the AF-S model was debatable with my D300, D2x, D3, but the 70-200 is in a different league.

Had a 2nd generation 2.8/80-200 AF D push pull from the early 90's up to around 2012 as my workhorse/bread an butter zoom (before that had the 1st generation AF non D version)

Used it for everything, from sports to fashion, beauty to theater/catwalk, etc. with film bodies like the F801S/F90/F90X/F100 and DSLR's like the D70S/D1/D1H/D1X/D2X/D3.

Great lens, well up to the task during that IMO quite long period.

Unfortunately with the resolution of the D800 the softness when used wide open at 200mm became too much of an issue for my type of photography, in particular fashion, so had to upgrade,

Is a tricky lens to be used on today's DSLR. I am sure you know about the back focus issues with the lens with today's DSLRs. Unless, you have fixed and recalibrated it, it will impact your sharpness. I had to physically remove the front two lens elements and to reposition them further away from the sensor in order to mitigate the back focusing issues and to eliminate some low level of CA. As a result, the lens got sharper too with no noticeable CA shooting at high contrast subjects. I also added a bit of Structures and some mild sharpening to bring out the details.

I spent like 2 weeks in total tweaking the lens. Of course, if you are making serious money from your photography, by all means, get the VR 1 or VR II version. Thought is not bad for a sub $500 f2.8 80-200 pro zoom telephoto lens.

still getting used to this lens. Never had a telephoto lens - and this was shot in manual. Probably should have used AF.

From today....Caumsett State Park in Long Island...

The Sandpipers were about 12ft to 25ft in front of me most of the times.
