Secondly, on the Nikon 80-200 f/2.8D. I have to disagree here in a way. You didn't really say anything bad about it and you were correct about no motor and old, but this lens is crazy good. It's the last of the old pro-grade Nikons with that all metal crinkly black finish. The optics produce what many, including me, think are as good as any 70-200 f/2.8 out there can do and maybe better. I certainly prefer it. It has that crystal clear punch that some lenses can't create.


You are misguided and misguiding. You sing praises to the lens which is very unsharp at 200 mm, everywhere, and only sharpens up by f/8. If you want sharp pictures in daylight, why not to use ONLY ANY P&S? And you really think that it can be "as good as any 70-200 f/2.8 out there can do and maybe better"? Have you seen what 2.8G AF-S ED VR II can do hide open?

And your recommendation of Canon S110 is also telling - only THE WORST enthusiast P&S of 2012?
