Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8D ED AF

1986NAS_180
Review Date: May 11, 2007 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Very sharp even at f2.8 for almost all the focal length. Cheaper compare to the 70-200mm VR. Focusing is quite fast enough for street photo, portrait & some sports. Build like a rock!
Cons:
At 200mm f2.8, minimum focusing distance (about 2-3 meters), it is soft. When close to f4.0, or longer focusing distance, it is very sharp at 200mm.

This is one of my favorite lens. Although it is not a perfect lens (not exist i believe), but it is fast and sharp lens. The build quality is real pro grade.
I have a gallery specially for this lens in PBase.:
