Nikon 180mm f/2.8D ED-IF AF Nikkor

1940NAS_180
Review Date: Jul 3, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Weight & portability, superb image quality
Cons:
Focus speed is unpredictable (not always slow, but sometimes hunts), esp in low light

I wanted a mid tele that was light, easy to carry around and had a good wide aperture. The alternatives (eg. 80-200 F2.8) were well rated but cost more and weighed a lot more.

I was brought up on primes so don't mind the lack of zoom.

I am still learning with this lens, but am enjoying using it and have been pleased with my initial results.
