    which nikon 80-200

    The push-pull has an AF range limiter, as does the 2-ring model.

    Just got 80-200 f/2.8 AF-D from KEH have a question

    I paid $550.00 for an EX 80-200 D 2.8 (push pull) with caps and hood last year.

    Just got 80-200 f/2.8 AF-D from KEH have a question

    My 80-200 D does the same thing at close range. I've read about others having the same experience. I did not buy the lens to shoot at such close ranges so it's not really a problem for me. I think if you search for 80-200 2.8 threads you will find quite a bit of conversation about this topic.

    Considering a new Dell system

    I'm not at my pc but I am pretty sure it says on the ad that this machine comes with two years of xps at home support. Is costco being disingenuous?

    No Tokina 12-24 love?

    The only real drawback I ever heard of with the Tokina 12-24 was the CA. And many seem to think it's not really even a problem. Enjoy your new lens!

    BGN glass at KEH

    I picked up my 35-70 2.8 D from KEH as a BGN item. It's got a few marks and it's clearly not a new lens, but it certainly qualifies as a true bargain..as they state. Also picked up my 80-200 2.8 D from them as an EX I recall. That lens appears to be new.

    80-200 F/2.8

    I have the push pull 80-200 2.8 D. You will be giving up separate zoom/focus rings, an integral tripod mounting foot, and potentially faster focusing. Optically and quality wise, you will sacrifice nothing.

    Would like your input on a 3rd lens

    You seem to prefer fast aperture lenses. Perhaps something like a 35-70 2.8 or a 17-55 2.8 would fit the bill.

    Backed up from 70-200vr to a 80-200 what?

    It takes some getting used to, but I keep a finger or two on the front portion of the lens and use the others to manipulate the zoom fore and aft.

    Backed up from 70-200vr to a 80-200 what?

    I use the D80/80-200 push pull combo and AF speed has not been a problem.

    Backed up from 70-200vr to a 80-200 what?

    Thanks. I tend to stop it down to f4 and leave it there, but will occasionally shoot at larger apertures. The second shot from the bottom in the first post is wide open for instance. I suspect you will like it a lot.

    Backed up from 70-200vr to a 80-200 what?

    I picked up the same lens from KEH a few months ago as a 70-200 VR was out of my budget. Been nothing but happy with this lens.

    80-200 F2.8 D MACRO ED, Thoughts?

    I have that lens on a D80. The slow focus claims are a little overstated IMHO. It focuses plenty fast to follow action from any reasonable distance. If you are doing weddings and fashion, it's not even an issue obviously. It's a sharp lens and the bokeh is very sweet.

    Nice shot Nute! Although I must say, I was rather amazed to see that you used f4. :)

    Showcase Nikon 70-300mm VR

    I'm pretty happy with my 70-300 VR but I would gladly trade somebody straight across for their 80-400 VR. The 300/f4 does not suit me at all.

    Tammy's here... (pic added)

    I generally associate cheap and plasticky with Tamron, based solely upon my handling of a 17-50 in a store last year. I am still curious to see what kind of IQ you get and how the AF performs.

    It's on the way

    Did you not have a Sigma 70-200 2.8 just recently? Either way, I am eager to see the results from this lens. It's created so much controversy it seems!

    View NX hogging resources

    I use it solely to sort and view. All of my NEF conversions are done in Capture NX. Are there any good freeware alternatives to View NX? I also have CS2, perhaps I should look into using Bridge?

    What to do down the line? Suggestions welcome....

    I would lean towards investing money in good lenses at this time. Unless you have specific uses in mind for the primes you listed, I think I would plan on ordering the 17-55 2.8.

    How slow is the AF on the 80-200 push-pull?

    No complaints here with a D80 and 80-200 2.8 D Push Pull combo. As stated before, from minimum to maximum focus distance it's a bit pokey but for tracking subjects on the move, it works well. I generally use mine for swimming but this weekend was tracking some kids running around a park and...

    View NX hogging resources

    I gave the program 20 minutes to load thumbs or whatever else it felt like doing. Even after that, it continued to consume about 70% of my processor power. This is really irking me because I want to use the program, but clearly it's just not useable this way. Any other ideas?

    How much are 80-200mm?

    It must be a real crown jewel at that price. I'm guessing it's either UGLY rated or it has some sort of damage making it far less desirable. Or, maybe it's a steal (probably not though :smile: ). I paid $550.00 for my EX rated 80-200 2.8 D push pull with caps and hood. If the two rings...

    View NX hogging resources

    I have installed View NX a few times over the past few months and each time I use it, it bogs down my processor and renders the program virtually useless. Inevitably, I wind up uninstalling the program out of frustration. I got to thinking the other day that perhaps the program is trying to...

    I don't own either, but I have to think the differences run deeper than simply an f number.

    Sigma 30mm 1.4 owners ?

    It has to cost them more money to fix/adjust all of these lenses after the fact, than it would to simply set them up correctly from the get go. For sure, they would have a much better image with the photographically inclined public.

    80-200 2.8 Poor IQ at 200mm/f/2.8

    Focusing at minimum focusing distance yields less than stellar results when at the long end of the zoom range. Fortunate for me, my uses for this lens do not include close focusing at all.
  42. S

    80-200 2.8 Poor IQ at 200mm/f/2.8

    2.8, 200mm, minimum focus distance 2.8, 80mm, min focus distance f4, 200mm, 35 feet focus distance

    80-200 2.8 Poor IQ at 200mm/f/2.8

    Mine is the same way at close focus distances. Moving out to 20 feet or so, it sharpens up nicely.

    Help! What do I tell my wife?

    I've never seen anybody buy so many high dollar lenses in such a short period of time. As for what to tell your wife, tell her it's better than spending the money on drugs and liquor. Also, tell her what motel you will be checking into, just in case she decides to let you back in. :)

    The 70-300VR is sick.

    Thank you. I've been very satisfied with my 70-300 VR. I do live there. The beaches of Carmel or Monterey, the Laguna Seca Raceway, Carmel Valley are all within a 20 to 30 minute drive. Makes for some very convenient photo opportunities when I find the inspiration to make some new wallpaper...
