Superb Telephoto-zoom lens for sports and nature photography.

Maintains fast f/2.8 aperture throughout zoom range.

3 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements for high resolution and high contrast even at maximum apertures.

AF Zoom-Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D ED 4.8 5 58 58
Nikon's Legendary f2.8 Tele-Zoom I have used this lens on assignments around the world. It's been dropped, splashed with salt water, left in hot vehicles for hours on end, caked in sand, and no matter what I do with it, it continues to make extraordinary pictures every time out. It focuses nearly as fast as the 70-200 AFS, yet it is noticeably smaller and lighter, and best of all it costs one-third less! Yet its optical performance is absolutely unreal. Sharpness, contrast and colour fidelity are spectacular. Distortion is minimal, ghosts and flare are unheard-of. It's built like a tank. Several people have asked me why I don't upgrade to the 70-200 AFS with VR, but in all honesty I just don't see what I would gain. This lens does everything I ask of it and more. Wonderful lens that every photographer should have in their bag. August 6, 2010
Great alternative to 70-200 This lens has been fantastic for shooting horse shows, and for everything else as well. It's a little long for close up work but if you've got room to back up does fine for portraits. Always sharp, and very fast, it is a fine sub for the twice as expensive 70-200. It's heavy though, be sure and get a more elastic foam type strap for long outings to avoid neck chaff. Good for indoors especially w today's awesome high ISO sensors. Most indoor arenas can be shot at ISO 3200 or less at 2.8 without flash. July 30, 2010
Nikon Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D ED AF This will probably be one of the most desired zoom lenses Nikon ever.        Still continue to have a good demand and its share price, despite the innumerable quantity sold in each of its versions, is a reflection of the robustness and quality with which they were built.        Produced from 1987 to 2008, was sold in four models: *1 (1987-1992) 80-200mm Nikkor f / 2.8 ED AF - model push / pull with 3 ED elements. *2 (1992-1997) 80-200mm Nikkor f / 2.8 ED AF-D - going to be an objective of the series D (now has the distance information to the object focused for better light metering, now possible in 3D Matrix). Is also a push / pull with 3 ED elements in your building model. *3 (1997-2006) 80-200mm Nikkor f / 2.8 ED AF-D - also D series, this third model (review here) has won a string of tripod and went on to have two rings - one for adjusting focus and the other for focal length. As with previous models has three ED elements. *4 (2007-2008) 80-200mm Nikkor f / 2.8 ED-IF AF-S - D series, this latest model now has a system of internal focus IF. Its optical construction features 5 ED elements.        They all have in common the excellent optics and build quality.        The optical quality of this lens is excellent! Produces images with vivid colors, good contrast and very sharp. Certainly the three ED elements present in its construction contribute to such good results.        The blur is excellent, very smooth! Produces beautiful results in all situations is not necessary to use it only in larger apertures.        The level of construction, just pick up one of these lenses to feel its weight and robustness denouncing their quality. Very well built, made primarily of metal.        But it is important to pay attention to some details: this is not a sealed and resistant to dust and moisture objective! It takes some care to use it wherever you go. This objective suffers easily with condensation. Careful when exiting a hot environment and go to a cold environment with this objective!        It is also good to be careful with the focus ring, it seems that plastic is used internally to keep you stuck. This plastic can break the misuse. I've worn a used model that was being sold and the focus ring suffered this damage.        Only handle this objective is already a pleasure! While "big" and heavy is a comfortable lens to use. The two rings are well placed - the zoom ring is not "glued" to the camera body - which allows you to switch between them expeditiously.        DX used in this objective becomes a 120-300mm f / 2.8! A good range of distances and certainly more than enough for a multitude of situations. August 20, 2014
The best mid range zoom lens from Nikon I’ve been with Nikon gear since 1993 and my “mayor” fist buy was the older version of this lens (the push-pull barrel with no tripod mount). I start with this comment because this version corrects almost all the disadvantages of its predecessor. The “slow” barrel motion to get the correct focal distance and the BIG issue that you need to buy a “cradle” to hold the lens to a camera in order to put both together mounted in a tripod. In terms of price you’ll find it in about $1,200 and it worth every dollar invested. The “new” version moves smooth and fast depending on which camera you put on. The new versions like the D600 are quite faster than the older ones but the fact that still uses the motor in the body makes it a little slower vs. the 70-200mm version. The optics are exceptional and with poor light conditions or indoors you can get razor blade sharp photos at f/2.8. This lens is also great for portrait because you can move form 85mm to 135mm with a little twist of hand. Allowing you to be more still or to keep a good distance vs. your subject. The other advantage is its shallow depth of field that allows you to have really blurred backgrounds. Since I can remember all the Nikon (ED rated) are simple the best in class. The colors are true and the definition and sharpness always at the top. They worth the extra bucks! Another advantage is the filter size (77mm) if you are considering to move to top of the line gear you can invest in Nikon Filters such as the New soft focus or the circular polarizer and use between them. There are now plenty of other top lens with such filter size. This is important when you buy a Polarizer of +$125 USD. I tested the 80-200mm VR and the outcomes in terms of quality are almost the same, the difference is if you take photos without tripod at focal lengths higher than 105mm. As a thumb rule you need a speed that doubles the focal length in order to avoid camera movement. In this case to obtain a 1/250 sec. in low light or indoors is not that easy. Nevertheless now we can “compensate” using a higher ISO number. In the old days the use of an ISO 400 film was considered fast. Now with the newer Nikon DSLR you can set the ISO at 800 or 1600 and still get outstanding results. Some consider this lens “old fashion” because don’t come with the VR features but this depends on you. I still like to “think” when you are taking portraits and compensate the camera movement and lighting conditions, making photography both, challenging and rewarding. January 1, 2014
True work horse! I've bought this lens at least 12-13 years ago and have taken 1,000's, and I mean 1,000's, of first quality pics (35mm and digital) with it. It's truly a beast and it has been trucked all over the world and has never failed me! My photo buddy has the 80-200 VR II and we can't tell the difference, except that he's not very happy about spending a grand for VR that he doesn't ever use! We're both shooting D800's and as with every Nikkor 2.8 lens, the images are spectacular. But that's what I expect or I wouldn't have switched from Canon 14-15 years ago!! August 3, 2013

Answer: 
Sorry, but Top 10 Contributor answer is not correct.
AF Zoom-Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D ED is really can create clear images in AF mode, but it will work with your D5000 only in manual mode (no Aftofocus) and that means that there is no warranty to get clear images.
D5000 do not have internal AF motor and AF Zoom-Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D ED also.
If you want to have Autofocus mode with D5000, you need to use Nikkor lenses only with internal silent motor (all of the lenses must start from "AF-S ..... ) or upgrade your camera to D90, D300S or D7000 and use .AF Zoom-Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D ED in AF mode.

Answer: 
Yes, it was updated from the push-pull type of mechanism to a two-ring function (one for the focal length, the other for focusing). This may seem rather unusual or perhaps even counter-intuitive, but it does work well. It's still a very good and sharp lens to have and use. I use mine (it's the second version that has the limiting switch, not a ring to limit the focusing range) and it's been a solid lens.

Answer: 
The built-in AF assist illuminator enables the camera to focus even when the subject is poorly lit. To use the illuminator, the camera must be in single-servo AF with an AF-Nikkor lens attached, and the center focus area must be selected or closest subject priority in effect. If these conditions are met and the subject is poorly lit, the illuminator will light automatically to assist the autofocus operation when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway.

Looking for a great telephoto for the D70 in the 1,000.00 range.
Also looking for a great micro lens for the D70 under 1,000.00 range.
May consider purchasing the D90, but am in desperate need of the telephoto and have been for some time.

I have a D300S. The teleconverter fits to the body, but not to the lens. Is this the correct teleconverter for this lens? The instructions say it is compatible with an AF-S 80-200. Since the lens only says it is an AF does this prevent the teleconverter from fitting onto the lens?

Answer: 
No, the 80-200mm F2.8D AF cannot use any of the "E" teleconverters. There are no Nikon teleconverters that support autofocus with this lens.

Answer: 
Nikon has a table of compatible lenses. The url is:
http://www.nikonusa.com/en_INC/IMG/Assets/Common-Assets/Images/Teleconverter-Compatibility/en_US_Comp_chart.html
note that the first statement is: The following lenses may be used with the Nikon AF-S Teleconverters, some with noted functional limitations. NIKKOR lenses not listed cannot be used with the AF-S Teleconverters. The rear elements of NIKKOR lenses not listed can contact and damage the Teleconverter element and must not be attached. List includes current lenses along with lenses for which production may have ceased. Lenses no longer produced are shown only for convenience as a compatibility reference!

Now, you ask WHY. This lens is NOT AF-S for starters. The problem with lens rear glass is an issue, as well.
