Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8D ED AF

1986NAS_180
Review Date: Jun 24, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $500.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp. 2.8 is even very good on my copy. Focuses fast on the D3, not like the 70-200, but quick. Build is solid.
Cons:
Can hunt in low light, but that's to be expected...

I use this lens a lot for weddings, even some portrait work. I have a really sharp copy, even beat it around a bit as I use it professionally. This lens is an excellent substitute for the 70-200 at it's price point.

Pros: Great body layout, easy to get around, sub and main dials work fantastic together. No problems here with build quality, it has been quite a trooper. Can produce pro quality work. Battery life is unbelievable.
Cons:
No ISO 100. Noisy after ISO 800. Not designed for battery/vertical shutter grip.

Wonderful camera. I use it for weddings primarily. Needs a bit of PP to get the most out of it's images, but it's always a good idea to PS your shots anyway IMO.

Battery life is crazy. I have a spare, and I've never used it. 8 hour shoots, RAW, lots of setting adjustments, doesn't phase it.

This camera is unbeatable for the price. Without going to the D200 it's a great step up from the D50 with it's sub and main dials and 1/8000sec shutter. It's really cool having the ISO step up in 1/3 EV steps, too.

I wish this camera was built to have the battery grip with vertical shutter release, though. The D50 doesn't have this either. This is my only real problem with the camera.

A great choice for an amateur or pro.
