The 80-200 two-ring is a really nice lens optically, but the AF/MF-switch-ring is very prone to breaking after some years.

That is the single reason I am not still using that lens. The repair is not that expensive, but it only lasts until next time it breaks since the design of the ring is flawed. Although optically it is still very nice.
