Advice on 80-200 f2.8 lenses
Apr 16, 2012

What do you guys think is the most interesting value between these two lenses ?

1. Nikkor 80-200 f2.8 old push/pull version for 330 euros
2. Newer 80-200 f2.8D for 500 euros (not the AF-S version though)

Both are in very good state.

My understanding is that they share the exact same optical design, therefore the IQ would be the same.

However, the second one focuses much much faster (1. is very slow apparently) and is also much less prone to dust.

Thanks!
