Me too, I use the old 180mm 2.8 ED AIS, I bought a used copy for 30$ in a camera fair in Montreal, I use it on my D3s, the results are quite nice:

I still use the ancient AIS 180/2.8 ED... and wouldn't trade it for the AF version, nor for any of the 80-200 or 70-200 AF-S VR [insert your favourite acronym here] zooms.

Believe it or not, some actually prefer wonderfully built and relatively compact prime lenses to huge and unwieldy zooms that are invariably finished in plastic, have no aperture rings and have cheap plastic filter threads.
YMMV, of course. To each their own.

Cheers,

Marco
