Opinion:Bought voluntarily with an engine that goes in fits and starts (so paid much less, I have to remove the fire and refocus, makes a couple of shots and then loses the engine does not go), I immediately found myself super well. The lens has colors and a pro optics rendering but it is its bokeh that made me fall in love. The weight and dimensions are cluttered and at the end of the day they feel on the neck and back. This optics has an ultrasonic motor that breaks very easily and the cost of repair is high. Soon I will have it repaired. Vote 9
Pros:The colors, the rendering at all openings, the sharpness, quality construction
Cons:The focus motor
Opinion:Weight is subjective so I don't feel compelled to emphasize it as a merit or a defect. The only problem of this lens and its colleagues of those years is the ultrasonic motor that unfortunately breaks down quite easily, as we all know repairs are never too cheap especially on quite dated lenses. All this is balanced by a blurry (not too marked) colors (pastel) and a sharpness to all the openings without equal of the time.
Opinion:Found a specimen with broken engine at €250 with a TC-200 and a 20mm 2.8 AF first set in free. Obviously bought because 1) the value of the whole package obviously was worth the only value of the zoom and 2) in the middle tele I was covered only by the F2 135 AI-S... That I will now sell, because comparing the same image read with the two lenses known that a) the zoom in my opinion is more resolving than the fixed (image read with same times, with same aperture, with the same light, the zoom shows me details that the fixed does not show with equal sharp Ezza, B) The fixed tends to overexpose slightly, while the zoom has more realistic colors, also has a micro-contrast that provides images really "crisp" c) the manual focus is almost more pleasant and certainly equally precise d) ergonomics Much better than the fixed. Also, contrary to what is said below, I think it does not weigh even exaggeratedly... the lens from which I come weighs almost equal (and offers less, except in the bokeh, where the 135 wins with low hands). Surely it is a fine cannon! Rated 9 just for that damn SWM engine that I'd like to know where in its time Nikon went to replenish itself. When I feel the need I will have it repaired.
Opinion:This optics is a point of arrival. It's true she's not stabilized, but she doesn't miss it. It has a global quality (sharpness, bokeh, focal range, constructive solidity due to the wide use of metal alloys in place of plastics) which-unfortunately-belongs now to the Nikon optics of a few years ago. I come from a whole history of zoom 80-200-in order-from the beautiful 80-200 F4 to 2.5 ai (which I still have in the drawer), to go on the AF 70-210 f4-5.6, the AF 80-200 F2, 8, AFS VR 70-200 F2, 8-first version-, AFD 80-200 F2, 8-2 ring Nuts-(2 units) , and now this. Impeccable in all respects, it provides plastic and sharp images, almost as much as AFS 85 F1, 8. Unfortunately it is really big and heavy in practice equal to the 80-400, negative point not just in some respects but positive for others, because the inertia of its mass helps to stabilize the shot. As already reported for other lenses of this generation: it is the first AFS of Nikon that is a little ' more delicate and inclined to failures than the current, so pay attention to the purchase of the used; However, it has a very fast autofocus that, coupled with the right machine, allows an effective chase even of the most difficult moving subjects (such as children in swing) without risking blurred images. My suffers from a backfocus marcatissimo, to correct which I had to calibrate the machine A-20; To the eventual lucky buyer I recommend absolutely to perform the calibration of the AF, essential to obtain a perfect focus with this kind of lenses. Rated 10-
Opinion:Try on different types of short telephoto Nikon tutti.Le exceeds this performance is monstrous, color rendering and tonal passages, nitidezza.Costruzione at the top and not economic as the latest home Nikon.Purtroppo lens is heavy and cumbersome but it pays for itself with the efforts to the clicks that lead to casa.rnBisogna pay attention to the engine af, problem plaguing the first series of afs Nikon (17/35 - 28/70 - 80/200 range) to the ultrasonic motors break without much notice and repair It turns out to be salted.
