Pros: Microcontrast, color, contrast, sharpness, tonality! This lens excels in all these aspects!

Cons: Zoom creep, manual focus, hard to nail focus

Opinion: Great color, contrast, and very good sharpness! Color and contrast are much much better than the modern G lenses. Also, great microcontrast and tonality! My 50mm 1.8G and 85mm 1.8G suck when it comes to microcontrast! But this 35 years old lens excels! Its amazing! Highly recommended. One may also consider the 80-200 f/4.5! Its lighter and cheaper and great for landscape. The f/4 one seems to be more optimized for closer subjects rather than at infinity.

Pros: Sharpness, lenses that have made Nikon history at the highest level, solid, robust, excellent definition, magnificent portraits, on any occasion proves to be a great lens

Cons: nothing

Opinion: The average rating of 9.7 says a lot about this old generation Nikon lens, the one that made the brand famous and legendary. I use it with my D500 in manual focus and automatic aperture priority with medium reading with central or spot prevalence, and it's fun, fun, and always at the highest levels, for sharpness, contrast, colors, surprising definition. Its solidity and robustness, typical of AI-S lenses, is an unlimited guarantee. I tried multiple zooms of that range: from the AF 80-200 F. 2.8 Nikon onwards, but with a digital like the D500, if I went on this non-AF lens, there is a plausible reason: it has no rivals, also for its handling and weight contained in proportion to its characteristics.

Pros: definition, constancy of yield on all focal points and at all lengths, three-dimensionality of the image, ergonomics (still!!) materials and unimpeachable construction. ridiculous price compared to what it offers

Cons: none, except that they no longer manufacture it

Opinion: I bought 3, all to be restored, all 3 once restored to their former glory, I sold them to finance other goals. Well, 3 months ago I bought another one at 30 degrees, a shady dial, with lots of mushrooms to make risotto and glued diaphragm. As with the other 3 I disassembled it completely, reclaimed from fungi and mold (luckily they had not affected the lining of the lenses) replaced the felts of the zoom, and fattened the helicoid, it is back as new! I do not make the photo repairer for a living, but only for passion, I disassembled several lenses, but the quality that is found in this lens (and in general on all the old Pre Ai,Ai, Ai-s) is scary!! Yes it can disassemble and reassemble indefinitely without problems, because there is not a single part that is not metal, except the lenses( and that lenses!) the precision of processing and assembly is crazy, just think that the zoom mechanism works without lubrication without lubrication . All this makes us think even more, if we think that when it was produced there were no numerically controlled processing systems, but almost all the processes were handmade. I love this goal, because, despite being manual focus, it has an incredible operational speed, the lack of af easily compensates by closing the diaphragm, but on firm or slow subjects it also starts well at TA, where it is already a blade on the whole excursion. The colors are saturated, but never fired, plastic, full-bodied and neutral. It goes well with the sensors of 24Mp and beyond, the solvency of this lens manages even the most demanding sensors. It's a pleasure to use! Fast, fluid, the monopoly control is practical and fast. It has contained dimensions and weight. I confirm what Gsabbio said, the F4.5 version is better, especially the 80-200 f4.5 N, so to speak, the one with the rectangular mask on the rear lens, but we talk about goat wool. If you find one take it without hesitation, on digital goes great, if then taken in analog, try it on the 125 fp plus, in terms of details and sharpness is literally scary! My apple trees hold tight

Pros: Excellent optical performance throughout the excursion, build quality.

Cons: Presence of purple fringing at 200mm at the edges in objectively difficult situations of strong contrasts (branches and leaves against clear and bright skies).

Opinion: Driven by positive opinions and looking for a high-quality zoom however more manageable than the already excellent, but longer and heavier, AI S 100-300 f/5.6, I found one used at 50 degrees (dated to 1982-83) that is satisfying me a lot for its versatility and optical quality (nothing new nor original from this point of view). Used for portraits, it is an excellent lens that, as already rightly highlighted in a previous review, does not forgive uncertainties or imperfections in focus (I use it on a Sony Alpha 7), a point that certainly can not be attributed to the quality of the goal... I usually use it at intermediate openings, especially at f/8 and despite the limitations imposed by the adapter rings, so far I can use it profitably in good available light conditions. Yield excels, I think, especially at short and medium distances. The level of construction quality is truly remarkable; it's a pleasure to carry it (from a certain point of view... on the other hand the almost 900 grams of weight in some cases, at the end of the day, feel...) and use it precisely for this reassuring - and entirely deserved - sense of robustness and reliability.
