Soft at 200mm, fully open aperture and minimal focus distance.This indicates that the distortion is limited to the outer edges and corners of the frame, not extending very far into the image area itself.MF4 MF2 NO AF2,3 AF AF AF VR DX D5000 NO!On the other hand my 80-200 is very sharp from f4 so I owners manual for chevrolet silverado reasoned that this took care of two or three stops advantage straight away.I still have this lens as a back-up and still use it occasionally.AF Auto focus Nikon lenses introduced in 1986.At f/4 and beyond this lens is a dream lens.Maybe a little heavy to carry all day.I have used it with both a D300 and a D700 and my view is it performs best on the D700 both in IQ and focus performance.It however is not affecting the focus except to cause a bit of headache when it slips off auto at the least opportune time.Sidebar: when it comes to lenses, you DO get what you pay for.The first were the 300mm f/2.8, 500mm f/4 and 600mm f/4, all D ED IF AF-S Nikkor.AF-S Introduced in 1996, Nikon AF-D lenses with a "Silent Wave" ultra s onic motor of their own, for fastest AF operation.Perfect for all the above.The lens is very soft at 200mm.8, min focus distance (macro).
To avoid this, the standby time may be set in the camera for a longer time or "Unlimited".
These new E-type lenses are CPU controlled, AF-S, and not to be confused with 1980's MF Series-E lenses.

All in all, a fine lens for anyone wanting a fast mid-range telephoto zoom for their Nikon-mount dslr.MF4 MF2 NO AF2,3 MF AF MF10 VR DX D5500 NO!There is not tightness at all on either ring, also being very well placed.AI-cameras that still may use non-AI lenses includes the Nikon F2A/F2AS with Photomic A (DP-11) or AS (DP-12) finder, Nikon (Nikkormat) EL2, as well as Nikon FM and.It feels more solid than the 70-200.When I fine tuned that, it was soft at shorter lengths.This piece of optics is built to last ages - the body is thik metal, front element is recessed and ths protected by the same metal shell.However I decided on the Nikon because it was much more rugged built like a tank could also focus close up, and felt it was a better value since they both cost nearly the same.However it's no where near the 80-200mm in terms of build quality.mm f/11.0 (lens head; requires CU-1 or AU-1 focus unit) 1200 mm f/11.0 ED (lens head; requires CU-1 or AU-1 focus unit) 1200 mm f/11.0 ED-IF 2000 mm f/11.0 Reflex Macro 45 mm f/2.8 ED PC-E Micro 55 mm f/2.8 Micro 55 mm f/3.5 Micro 55 mm f/4.0 UV Micro (prototype only).
Some argue that this lens is even sharper than the already legendary Nikon 70-200.
Even with all the new VR lenses I still think this is the best value on the market if you need a fast lens.
