80-200 2.8 AF-D 2 ring questions
9 months ago

While I more or less am aiming for the push pull (virtually convinced), as I am quite comfortable with a single ring and am thinking that a single ring will enable 'off the cuff' fast work better,

- How do you find the 2 ring for fast sports adjustments to zoom and focus, is it not cumbersome, considering that the zoom ring is also close to the body, I mean, to adjust the zoom ring and maintain stability while doing so?

- do you zoom and manual focus much and if you do, how does it go?

- this is quite subjective (or even more) but how often do you use the tripod /mount and for what types of work?

- Finally, I am correct in my conclusion that the optics of the 2 ring and the AFD ED push pull are the same?

- Any of those who have used the push pull, any stories or facts on whether / how often the AF mechanism has failed (thinking parts).

Much appreciated!!!

Thanks.
