How do you like th bokeh on 80-200mm f2.8 D? (the newer 2 rings non-afs version) Any examples?
I just upgraded to the 70x200 to get VR, but loved my two ring 80x200. No issues with either lenses on Bokeh...
Three samples from the 80x200 are below:
Here's the best I can do:
1/400, f4.0, 280mm, iso400
1/4000s f/2.8 at 200.0mm iso360
1/4000s f/2.8 at 200.0mm iso360
it's a wonderful lens, the bokeh is good, imho.

oopsa, mine's a one ring, sorry...;-(
like the bekeh, and LOVE the lens - most of my use is in film with it, but believe me, it is fantastic for portraits
one touch here also but I don't think there is any difference in the IQ. It's all good:

I still like the bokeh of the 180mm 2.8 slightly better
This is one of my favorite lens.... Love everything it does... Produces sharp photos with excellent color/contrast with great "Bokeh"..
i really like the "look" of this Wally, even if u did blow out the top of his head ..lol
I find it pleasing. It is smooth and nice looking IMHO.
The original photo wasn't blown out but after I run it through PS to give it this effect, it made the top of her head look as if it highlight issues. I liked the look anyway so I left it as it was... BTW, he is a she (Maesie)..., be easier she wore a dress or maybe just a pink ribbon around her neck so you can tell the difference...LOL....
This is another from the 80-200, but this one is of our boy , Maccers...
It shows the Bokeh from the 80-200.... (Click on Image to see correctly)
now that is sweet, Paul ....like everything about this one;-))
very nice, Wally..i liked the other one as well, like i said i liked the look. fact i like everything u throw out there from your 80-200 (that Cobra shot is still in my brain..lol) ....;-)))
But I'd have to tip my hat to you as the photos you posted here and elsewhere with your 80-200 (as well as from your selection of lenses), are superb mate...
That is gix, my best friend. He was a stray someone threw out where I work. He was so tiny that I could cup him in my hand. I fed him formula til he was big enough to eat catfood. That cat is honestly smarter than some people I know.
Now he weighs 15 pounds(zero fat, he is built like an boxer) and rules the rest of the house with an iron paw. We have 3 other cats but he is the feline in charge.
I will post some more pics of him soon, he loves the camera.
I agree, the 80-200 AF-D produces some great bokeh and some great pictures. Here are a couple I've taken recently since getting the lens.
great story, Paul ..can't wait to see more:smile:
..a kitty that rules with an iron paw, gotta love that ..lol
sweet Peet ...;-))
Thanks nute...the pic of the duckling really shows how thin the DoF is at large apertures.
You are right, it is very thin indeed. I have had noses out of focus when the eyes are sharp. A couple of inches is all you have around 200 wide open.
