question

Will the image quality and sharpness be noticeably better on this lens over the nikon 80-200 2.8?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Nikon 70-200mm f/4 is a sharper lens than the Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8, especially toward the more telephoto end of the range. And, with VR, you can definitely get sharper images with the 70-200mm f/4 VR if you shoot hand held.

question

Is this lens good for a portraiture ?
Asked by: Anonymous
This lens could be used for portraiture however it is not the best lens to purchase if portraiture is your intent. This lens is more of a general duty lens, used commonly for sports, wedding work, and event/journalists. For portraiture we would recommend a lens such as an 85mm f1.8. See the link below for details on the recommendation:http://bhpho.to/1hgf43h

question

I'm thinking of purchasing this lens for a Nikon D5100. Any comments? I don't plan to upgrade to a full frame for a couple of years.
Asked by: Anonymous
This is an incredible lens. Extremely sharp! I use it on a D810 and it is as good as the best lenses out there. The auto focus is snap on quick. I don't know how the auto focus will work on a D5100 with it however. In low light situations I wish it was faster, but it is so user friendly being much smaller and lighter than a 2.8 lens. It is one of my favorite lenses.
