180mm 2.8 & 70-200 2.8 FOV difference?
Mar 8, 2010

Hi there,

I'm on the verge of selling my 70-200mm VR1 to buy something more compact. Since I seldom use any other focal lengths than 200mm on my VR1, I've been considering buying the 180mm AF-D 2.8 IFED. The only thing that's holding me back is the lost 20mm (even 200mm is a bit short to my taste sometimes).

The 300mm f4 is out of the question at the moment, since I really do need the lens to be F2.8 -- oh, and compact

Since the FOV of different lenses at the same focal lenght don't seem to always match, I was wondering if somebody could provide me some comparison photos between these two lenses.

What I'm looking for is a comparison of FOV between the 70-200mm @ 200m and the 180mm @ 180mm. How much difference is there?

Any help would be greatly appreciated ..!
