The AF Zoom-NIKKOR 80-200mm f/2.8D ED Lens from Nikon is an FX-format, fast telephoto zoom lens with a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture effective for sports and wildlife photography, photojournalism in dim light and general telephoto applications. Its 80-200mm focal length is equivalent to the angle of view of a 120-300mm lens when used on DX-format DSLRs. 

It features an Internal Focus system which means the front element does not extend or rotate during focusing. An M/A mode ring switches between auto focus and manual focus modes and a focus limiting switch enables faster focus. Three Extra-Low Dispersion elements reduce chromatic aberrations for sharp, color-accurate imaging and Super Integrated Lens Coating minimizes flare and ghosting and improves image contrast. A sturdy metal barrel brings confidence to shooting in difficult situations and a rotating tripod mount is integrated into the lens design.

This lens' autofocus function is compatible with Nikon DSLRs featuring a built-in autofocus motor. It will not support auto focusing when used with certain DSLRs that do not have an integrated focus motor, such as the D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D3100, D3200, D3300, D5000, D5100, D5200, D5300.



Telephoto-zoom lens with fast constant maximum aperture for sports, wildlife and general photography. With DX-format DSLRs, it provides a 35mm focal length equivalence of 120-300mm.
Three Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements control aberrations for high contrast imaging even at maximum apertures.
Super Integrated Lens Coating reduces flare and ghosting and adds to overall image quality.
Manual and auto focus ring switch and focus limiting function
Manual aperture control ruing
Integrated tripod collar and sturdy metal barrel

    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 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 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 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 Loving it! Although this lens is Old World technology, I can't believe I had overlooked it for so long. I was in the camp that thinks that only the latest and greatest will suffice. I apologize to the 80-200 dinosaur for not considering it when I went in search of an f2.8 zoom. I thought I needed the 70-200 f2.8 VR lens. Due to not having $2300 or so laying around, I had the time to really research things while I saved my pennies. Several times I arrived at the conclusion that I didn't need to get the 70-200, but that the 80-200 would give me what I needed. While VR is nice to have, how often would I really use it? Not enough to justify spending double for a lens. The 80-200 is a purchase I won't regret.
