The Angry Photographer: WHICH TELEPHOTO ZOOM IS BEST?? Nikon Lens Secrets to save you $$


Elora Faelle says:

Best lenses for tiny wildife, like dragonflies, lizards, etc? I need to be able to zoom in on them without ruining the resolution, since using a regular macro lens isn’t always practical in situations where you can only get so close.

I just got my 80-200 f/2.8 D AF Macro Zoom ED a couple days ago.  I traded off a couple a couple old film lens I wasn’t using that were collecting dust and $250.00 difference.  After a couple days use it is my favorite zoom lens of all time.  I haven’t been this  excited about a lens since I got my 50mm 1.4  Carl Zeiss.  I love the look and the Bokeh.  I have to admit it is rather substantial in the weight area compared to my Nikkor 70-300mm, but it balances nicely when paired with my Nikon D700 with battery grip.  I don’t really miss the lack of Nano crystal coating, although lack of VR makes me focus more on my handling of the lens; however if I do my part it delivers stunning results I usually would only expect from my primes.  I usually use the 85, 105 and 135 sweet spots for portraiture.  The 60mm D 2.8 macro and the 80-200mm f 2.8D are my favorites of Kens picks for D  series.  I would like to add the 105mm D later on.  I believe anyone who has the D700, D3 or D4 would love this lens; however I think it would be a bit unbalanced on the D750.

babur.karaoglu says:

what do you think of 80-200mm f/4 ais for landscape. i suppose not practical to use due to it being a zoom and a non-cpu lens. but its cheap and light and built as a saab…

Tamron 70-200 G2, Nikkor 70-300 VR – D810 or D500 …perfect combination .. I love it …

Ladislav Slovacek says:

What about the Nikkor AF-S 80-200 ƒ/2.8D? I was between that, and the Nikkor AF 80-200 f/2.8D. Currently I have the Nikkor 70-300mm. Which one would you choose and why?

Andik Pri says:

+Theoria Apophasis. Hi ken. Which better option for d800, 28-300 or 70-300.

Flora Moraitini says:

Used Nikon AF 80-200mm f/2.8D, Two Touch What is this Two touch??????????

Flora Moraitini says:

Ken, something not clear to me. I see second hand mentioning AF 80-200 2.8D ONE HAND and TWO HAND) AND ANOTHER VERSION of AF-S 80-200 2.8 (withouth D). You are talking about the D version. But what is this One and two hand. Are they trying to confuse people to get the wrong lens??????

David De Vita says:

Hi, Ken. Good morning.
I got the 80 200 2.8 following your advise, but I got 2 big issues (please correct me if I’m wrong).
1. Softness at 2.8. I tested this lens at different light conditions and it’s too darn soft. It’s almost useless. Why would I buy a huge lens like this without being able to use it at 2.8? I got it for wedding photography and portraits and it’s kind of useless for that purpose. I tested it on long distances (about 10 m) at 200 mm in a d7200.

2. Out of focus. The softness might be caused by the focusing system. On the same tests I did at long distance only one out of 30 pictures or more was sharp. Yeah, the glass is almost great but does it matter if the picture is still blurry?

On the other side, I tried to do the micro af adjustment but no matter what value I put, it just doesn’t affect the pictures. Some people is saying this is because of the way the lens is build.

So, back to my doubt: does it really worth to still buy this lens or going for the Tamron 70-200 2.8 (more expensive)?

The version I got is older than yours in the video (yours has the AF distance switch, the one I got has a manual ring).

I had to pay a lot of money for returning it to Japan.

This video agrees with you:

Steven Johnson says:

What’s your thoughts on the AF-S version of the 80-200?

steve james steve james gonzales says:

Hi! how are you? what do think about 80-200 f2.8 Ed nikkor lens?

This Is says:

If money weren’t an issue, how would you consider the quality of the rendering of the 200VR ii compared to the 180 2.8 or 200 f4 macro? thanks

Sophia Lenore says:

Awesome – we like it ☺

Eric Witte says:

the 17-50 Sigma has major AF issues on at least 50% of the d7200s BUT I lucked out works great for me. I love the full 2.8 and OS performance. 70-300 VR for long range.
