Recently I offloaded my 70-200 VR on ebay (I bought it used and was not shooting enough to justify cost of owning). Looking at some of the great images using 80-200 by Panos and other forum members, lust has set in for a 80-200 2.8. An AF only model will ensure that AF-S and VR failures will not affect me in coming years. I do not plan to own AF-S (to keep cost down and I do not shoot fast sports). Hence, I have decided to go for an used 80-200mm f/2.8D ED AF (with two zoom rings). Do you think the focusing will be two slow on D200? Or do you think I shall go for Af-s? Or any earlier model (not sure about push-pull that I hear a lot)? You know the state of mind when lust sets in.:biggrin: Want to hear some opinions from the owners of this lens. Thanks.
