Review Date: Jan 8, 2007 Recommend? | Price paid: Not Indicated

 
Pros: cheap, Fast focussing AF-S
Cons:
plastic plastic

My previous review was for serial no. 2110307. The label on the lens said "Nikon corp. Japan" A friend of mine had the same but was going to sell it. So i tested it and it was slightly sharper. To my suprise the label said "Made in Tailand" with serial no. 2093902. We swaped lenses and he sold mine. For this particular lens i would rate it an 8

Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8D ED AF

1986NAS_180
Review Date: May 27, 2006 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: The AF-S 80-200 f/2.8 has excellent sharpness and bokeh. No vignetting at all with an DX sized sensor. The TC-14E II works great.
Cons:
The Hood is ridiculous big. I use de screw-in of the AF-D version. Very heavy (1600 gr)

I tried the New AF-D version but i did not like the torque reaction you feel during focussing (and is noisy too). The AF-D version has fast focussing but the AF-S is faster and is more quiet. I had to choose. A brand new AF-D or a second hand AF-S wich was 100 euro more expensive. I took the AF-S because if i did not like it, i could easely sell it again.
