Nikon AF NIKKOR 80-200mm f/2.8D ED Overview

  • 1Description

Covering portrait-length to medium telephoto focal lengths, the AF Zoom-NIKKOR 80-200mm f/2.8D ED from Nikon is a fast and flexible zoom well-suited for portraiture and event shooting. The constant f/2.8 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and also aids achieving selective focus and shallow depth of field effects. The optical design incorporates three extra-low dispersion elements, which help to suppress color fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved clarity, and a Super Integrated Coating is also used to reduce flare and ghosting. The lens's internal focusing AF system affords quick and precise control, and manual focus adjustment is also available. Additionally, a rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality to suit shallow depth of field imagery.

Telephoto zoom is designed for FX-format F-mount cameras, however can also be used with DX models where it provides a 120-300mm equivalent focal length range.
Bright f/2.8 constant maximum aperture suits working in low-light and also offers increased control over depth of field.
Three extra-low dispersion elements are used to minimize chromatic aberrations and color fringing throughout the zoom range in order to achieve a high degree of clarity and color fidelity.
A Super Integrated Coating has been applied to individual elements to suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
Internal focusing AF system is compatible with select Nikon DSLRs that support D-type lenses, and offers quick and precise focusing performance.

Autofocus is not supported by DSLRs lacking an autofocus motor, such as the D3000-series, D5000-series, D40, D40X, and D60, where the lens may be used with manual focus only.
A rotating tripod collar offers well-balanced support for photographing atop a tripod or monopod with either vertical or horizontal shooting orientations.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lens Bought the lens to take photos of my daughters sporting events and senior photos. It is by far my favoite lens. I now am asked by other parents to take photos of their children because of games going in the night. I have read that the auto focus is lacking, I disagree. My eyes are not what they were and I can not manually focus, the auto focus worked great under the light at a high school boys soccer game (I must add that the lighting at our field has much to be desired). I have taken several hundred photos for several seniors here using this lens and all have turn out great. My only regreat is not buying this lens sooner!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of glass! After trying a Tamron 70-200 f2.8 lens I finally ponied up for the Nikon. The Tamron's IQ was fine and especially for the price, but couldn't stand the slow AF. This Nikon is much faster in this category and WOW is it sharp! I consider it to be a great value in that it's much cheaper than the Nikon 70-200mm with just as good IQ and quicker AF than the 3rd party lense. It's built like a tank and expect it to last many years. The only con for me is the AF/MF ring. It's more difficult to operate when you're looking into the view finder than a push-pull design. Also I've heard this ring isn't very durable. Overall, if you can afford it.......get it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rugged, Brilliant, Magic I shot for many years with a Minolta system that, at the time, was their top of the line. I borrowed a friend's Nikon D300 with this lens and - I was overwhelmed by the clarity and saturation. I immediately sold my Minolta stuff on Ebay and purchased all new Nikon equipment, most importantly, this lens. It is built tough for the rigor of professional use, it has the legendary Nikon optical quality - edge-to-edge brightness with almost no detectable falloff, no barrel distortion worth mentioning, and exceptional color rendering. You simply can't go wrong with this lens, and it's well worth the extra money to go from the cheaper options to this one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again. I have owned this product for about two years. Most of my photos with this lens have been portrait and travel. I have not been disappointed either by image or build quality,and I do believe that the current crop of NIKON 70-200 lens have a long way to go to attain the quality this lens provides on a daily basis. To say this lens is professional quality in all respects is an understatement. My only two complaints is that the lens is really heavy and the collar cannot be removed. But, considering the overall quality of the lens in so many areas, these complaints are almost irrelevant.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nikon Nikkormat AF 80-200 F/2.8D ED I have wanted one of these lenses when they were first introduced . I was finally able to purchaseone for myself for Christmas 2012. I have not been disappointed. Yes, it is heavy; about the same as my Nikon D7000. I chose the 80-200 instead of the 70-200 VR version based on a conversation with a professional freelance sports photographer who said he seldom uses VR or auto focus and he would not pay double the price for another one. I compensate for lack of VR by using a tripod, monopod or higher ISO. This has become my favorite lens already. I would purchase another one and would use B&H again. this was not my first purchase with from B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2nd one This is my second 80-200 I wore out the old one, purchasing a new one was cheaper than repair. I pondered the 70-200 2.8 vrII after renting one for a few days made up my mind real quick. I work and live in Alaska most of my work is done in the cold the 70-200 didn't fend well in the extreme cold. The 80-200 may be old school but why mess with perfection. If your looking for a light weight lens this isn't it. Keep in mind you have to have knowledge in working with old school lens's to get this jewel to work to its potential, there is nothing automatic in this lens other than the focus.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Real Sleeper I wanted a 70-200 f/2.8, but didn't want to pay with my kidneys. Then I found this. I read all the reviews and decided this was the one for me. And I have ZERO regrets. This really is a viable option for those wanting a 70-200 f/2.8 lens. SHARP wide open. At 200mm, it gets a bit soft, but if you stop down, it's again very sharp. AF hunts a bit, but it is accurate. It is, after all, a AF-D lens. Wonderful Nikon colors and contrast. Sure, it doesn't have a VR, but knowing that, if you use it accordingly, you're not going to miss it. For me, it was not a deal-breaker. Absolutely love the lens. Perfect for portraits and telephoto landscapes. Haven't had much chance to play with it yet, but I know it's a keeper.

    is compatible with the Z6 with adapter FTZ the autofocus?
    Asked by: Jorge
    The Nikon AF Zoom-NIKKOR 80-200mm f/2.8D ED Lens, B&H # NI8020028DAQ, will not autofocus when connected to the Nikon FTZ Mount Adapter. However, other than autofocus, all other features will be fully compatible for use on the Nikon Z7/Z6 Mirrorless Digital Cameras.

    Will this lens work on any other type model such as sony or canon.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    The Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8 is designed to be used directly with Nikon camera bodies. There are adapters available that would enable the use of a Nikon F mount lens on a Canon EOS body, such as the Vello Nikon F to Canon EOS body adapter ring, and a FotodioX adapter for Nikon F mount to Sony A Mount camera bodies, however, you will lose automatic lens functions such as autofocus and auto exposure with the use of these adapters.

    How does the image quality of this lens compare to the Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 VRII?
    Asked by: Jeb B.
    This lens is just as sharp if not sharper then the 70-200mm f2.8vrII keep in mind the contrast range is different. The 80 - 200 has a higher contrast verses the 70-200 if your not used to it will take some getting use to.The reason I use this lens is that I work in Alaska and in the extreme cold the contrast range helps in the flat light of the winter. Also the VR and built in focus motor both slow down in temps blow 20 below F.

    Does auto focus work on D3100?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    No it doesn't because this lens and it does not have a built-in auto focus motor. Auto focus will work only when this lens is mounted to a camera body with auto focus motor, this is not the case of the D3100. Nikon entry level cameras with built in motor are D90 and D7100.
