I CONSIDER THE LENS ELEMENTAL!
HENRY MIAMI FL USA
My camera is reading err, shutter works. it is not focusing, doesn't recoginize the lens. what can I do
In addition, what is the difference between Nikon 80 - 200mm F2.8 AF-D / Nikon 80 - 200mm F2.8AF-S? Which lense is more appropriate for Nikon D80?
70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II and the AF Zoom-Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D ED. I would get the 70-200 if you don't mind spending the extra money, the VRII vibration reduction is well worth it if you are trying to shoot without a tripod.
I've had this problem for over a year now. The battery will show that it is almost empty even after a full charge
The light areas in some photos flash from black and back to lght again on the LCD monitor,does anyone know why?
