Pros: Looks cool to impress people who are around you, especially with a big Nikon body like F5 etc.

Cons: Too long too slow and too heavy to be used effectively, unless you have a stabilized body, which I think Nikon does not make!

Opinion: I had this lens in my earlier life of film era photographer. In that era it was already only decent in sharpness. It was actually quite soft close and wide open. Too soft by today's standards. Today it is a nice retro gadget but I would always use a modern sharper lens with OIS (or a body with IBIS, but Nikon has no body stabilisation even today, I think). I would not buy this lens again.

Pros: Mechanical quality;outstanding sharpness;very pleasant blur and bokeh at all apertures;lightweight,but sturdy at the same time;it brings very pleasant feeling when held! I haven't noticed any chromatic aberration as some people are stating here since there is nearly none!

Cons: AF could be a little be faster but open wide it performs excellently anyway!

Opinion: It is Nikon's 'Old Line' glass what could be kept with respect and valued as a treasure 'cose it is! For those who complain about chromatic aberration I'd advice to visit an oculist! Just get one reflex lens and you will know what does chromatic aberration means! With 180 mm there is nearly nothing from it! Noisy autofocus? Hey,people! It s absurd statement! Do you consider yourself as a photographers or sound engineers?! If so invest a bit of money and compare some Nikkor or third party lenses or - just put your cameras aside and switch to sound engineering industry,please! This is a piece of glass what even high class photographers are proud to have! Though - it is matter of taste!

Pros: Beautiful rendering of colors, perspective, blurred, three-dimensionality. Light.

Cons: I can't find any.

Opinion: I bought this used lens because I needed a telephoto lens paying very little. A real bargain. Light and with surprising quality, I use it a lot to take sports photographs (horseback riding) where it is really exceptional for the rendering of colors (the ground, the hair of the animals, the clothes of the conductors). It is bright and the focal length is well suited for indoor and fieldside use. Sometimes I add a focal length duplicator, but for my needs 180 mm is enough. Also good for portraits. The contrast is there but it seems to me not too violent.

Pros: Colors, sharpness at all apertures, exceptional blurring, construction, precise autofocus, absent aberrations, creates magic.

Cons: A bit of purple fringing on the spot reflections, unprotected diaphragm bayonet side.

Opinion: I use it on d750, I have an immaculate specimen and I bought it more to test the fame of what is considered one of the best nikon lenses ever than out of necessity. Optimized to be used at full aperture, it maintains the same performance at all apertures and at all distances. Someone says that closing gains a hair but mine has a detail not to believe already at 2.8 and personally I have never found the slightest difference. Even the online tests diverge in this regard so maybe it's a matter of specimens and I was lucky? Dunno. The colors are beautiful, natural and alive with zero chromatic deviations, warm but not yellow, aberrations totally absent (just a little purple fringing on reflections in extreme conditions). As a comparison I have two nikon 85mm 1.4 D and G and a sigma art 35mm 1.4. It has a color rendering that is halfway between the two 85, it is also more constant in performance and definitely easier to use with good results, difficult to really miss a shot. Quality of the blurred really at the highest levels in all its phases. Making a complete comparison is clearly difficult because of the very different focal lengths but I assure you that it does not fear comparisons. Obviously feels the weight of the years the anti-reflective treatment, combined with a comfortable but small hood and therefore not very effective. I find the autofocus very precise and consistent. Technicalities aside, it is simply a perfect lens that creates magic in any use, from portraits to landscapes, very easy to use and that makes you fall in love from the first shot. I bless the day I decided to take it, if I think of all my kit the only lens that I will never give away is this. Let's be clear the focal length has a very limited use (hence the low price in the used), if you shoot for work a 70-200 will guarantee you the versatility necessary to take home the loaf but if you take for passion it is a shame not to have it.
