    This review is from: Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8D ED AF Zoom Nikkor Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras (Camera)
    This lens is THE lens to own if you want to shoot indoor sports. The newspaper I work for has me out on a lot of volleyball, hockey and basketball beats, and this lens does not come off my camera. I have taken this lens out to soccer games and baseball games but use it mainly as back up. If you want to shoot these sports you’ll want something up in the 300-400 range. Soccer especially.

    The 2.8 aperture is a must for these low (and orange/brown) light situations. I was using a 200mm f4 but fell just short of being able to freeze the action perfectly without any blur. The little bit of extra light makes a world of difference.

    I shoot with a D80 and find that I can keep my ISO down around 400 and be very comfortable with the results. In my situation (newsprint) I could go as high as 800 and be alright with it, but the glass in this lens lets me keep it low.

    If you are in the fence, pick this lens up. For under 1000 bucks you can’t beat it. It’s ultra wide, and doesn’t lose any sharpness at 2.8.

    The only situation where you should not buy this lens is if you own a D40 or D40x. These bodies will not support the AF function of this lens, and seeing as how this is a great medium tele sports lens, not having AF would make this lens a bust.

    They make a version with a built in motor that will communicate the D40 and D40x but it’ll cost you close to 800 more.

    As a side note this lens is heavy (as are most 2.8 tele lenses) There is a lot of big glass in this lens and after an hour or so of shooting hand held you will really want a mono pod. This lens has a great tripod shoe, so don’t be afraid to throw it up on mono and go to town, your arms will appreciate the help

    One final note. If you are undecided about this lens because it does not have any sort of optical stabilization or vibration reduction consider what you will be using this for. If you are shooting sports or action you wont need and it wont use it. If you are shooting from a tripod or good mono pod, you wont need and wont use it. The VR is only good in handheld situations when the object you are photographing is stationary.

    This lens is a 5 star lens

    This review is from: Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8D ED AF Zoom Nikkor Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras (Camera)
    Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8D ED AF Zoom Nikkor Lens is a very good quality lens. It’s fast (fixed f/2.8), solid (built like a tank), produce great quality image, and priced very reasonably for a professional grade telephoto lens.

    Having said that, there are some additional features that would be nice to have for this lens such as image stabilization, more silent autofocus (AF-S), and shorter minimum focus distance but those features will make this lens a lot more expensive (as those feature is included in the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 AF-S VR lens). If budget is not an issue, then I would recommend the 70-200mm f/2.8 AF-S VR (the Vibration Reduction technology and faster and more silent focus are very useful) or the 80-200mm f/2.8 AF-S (which has faster and more silent focus). If large aperture (fast lens)is not your main requirement, then you can get the 70-300mm VR (at a lower price)

    There are several version of 80-200mm f/2.8 lens, and the latest one (non AF-S model and that Nikon still produce as of 2009) is the two ring model. The one ring push pull model is also good quality lens (solidly built and produce great image quality) but autofocus is much slower. If budget is an issue, the older push pull model would still be a good choice too.

    If you are wondering whether you should get a fast lens or a lens with VR (Vibration Reduction), here’s my take: In overall, VR does help a lot (as it will reduce camera shake) and will produce better/sharper picture than equivalent lens without VR (especially if the object is static). If the object is moving (sports/action) then VR feature alone might not help (depending on how fast the object is moving and how much light is available), and a fast lens often end up being a far better solution, even without VR feature as it will allow much faster shutter speed to freeze motion. Using tripod (and a remote) will substitute for the need of VR feature. In general I would recommend getting a fast lens with VR feature (and usually it is expensive) such as the 70-200 f/2.8 VR, but if one can only get for one or the other, then find out what do you want to use the lens for and then use the guideline mentioned here.

    FYI: This lens will not autofocus with Nikon D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D3100, D5000 or D5100.

    Pros
    1. Great quality lens (very sharp pictures. 3 of the glasses made/coated with ED technology)
    2. Very fast (fixed f/2.8 throughout the zoom range)
    3. Very reasonably priced (compared to 70-200mm f/2.8 AF-S VR and 80-200mm f/2.8 AF-S)
    4. Built to last. Very solid
    5. Great for sport, action, wedding and low-light photography
    6. Uses standard 77mm lens filter
    7. Bokeh is very nice at f/2.8
    8. Autofocus much faster than the older 80-200mm f/2.8 model (the push pull version)
    9. The price is very stable (I bought mine several years ago and I could still sell it at the same price today)
    10. With non full frame Nikon DSLR, the focal length becomes 120-300mm equivalent (nice reach). you can get Nikon 80-400mm for more reach but that lens is not fixed f/2.8).

    Cons
    1. Heavy at 2 lbs 14 oz or 1.3kg. (Good arm exercise :), or using tripod or monopod would be nice)
    2. Autofocus not as fast and silence as the AF-S model (70-200mm f/2.8 AF-S and 80-200mm f/2.8 AF-S), but the autofocus limiter switch improves autofocus time
    3. Tripod collar is too close to the zoom ring (you can remove or adjust the tripod collar though)
    4. Thread for the filter can be better (it’s made of plastic)
    5. Lens hood is sold separately (highly recommended to reduce flare and internal reflection)
    6. More expensive than Non-Nikon (sigma, tamron etc) brand alternative (some comparable price but they have faster and silence focus)
    7. Lens could jump around a bit during autofocusing if you are not strong enough (due to the glass moving fast as the lens autofocus)
    8. No Manual focus override mode on Autofocus mode
    9. No Macro mode (can’t be use for macro shot). closest focusing distance is quite far
    10. No VR (Vibration Reduction), which will help a lot for this type of lens (heavy and telephoto)

    In conclusion, if you are looking for a Nikon professional grade telephoto lens that is reasonably prices, you can’t really beat this Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8D ED AF Zoom Nikkor lens. This lens is really good choice for sport, action, wedding, low-light, indoor photography.

    Happy Photographing!
