Very nice set in Weeks 1-3, Huck. I notice that you are also an owner/user of the AF-S 80-200. Isn't that a great lens? But your portrait work is terrific ..... you don't seem to have forgotten much!
Thanks Harry. Yes, I love my AF-S 80-200. I am starting to get the high pitched focus whine which concerns me a little bit but it still works well for now. I'll prolly send it in eventually.

Huck, I hate to say this but you may have problems getting it fixed. It is old enough that Nikon may no longer stock some parts for it. I've heard that, being expensive, the AF-S motors are some of the first to run out.

You really put that lens to good use Weeks 4-6, Huck. I love natural light portraiture, but have never used my 80-200 for it. You've really made it shine .... Week 5 eye focus really pops them out, and the bokeh is excellent on 5 and 6. "Buddy" looks like he is enjoying the shoot, and I suspect you've caught him totally in character.

I've been on a bit of a break but I'm back trying to pick back up where I left off.

Thanks Harry! I do really love this lens for portraits
