Hello, I just got a used Nikon 80-200 f2.8 D (two ring version). Sometimes AF just got stuck at some point: you may hear a click of the motor when pressing on the shutter button, but lens doesn't focus. In this case it helps to switch to manual mode and then back. Manual focusing and zoom work fine. Do anyone have any ideas what can be wrong?

Anybody try a Nikon D3s & bowen/calumet 750r Travelites with pocketwizard hypersync feature? I dare not go out and buy MiniTT1 or FlexTT5 unit without having an idea what results I'd be getting if any with my existing lights. I've seen stuff on the pocketwizard website, but the tests were made with paul c buff lights, nothing with bowen. Just hoping someone has had experience with the monolights I've got. Thanks. --There's not 2 but 3 sides to every story. Theirs, yours, and what really...

I shoot concerts and most of them time get stuck at the soundpit, anything around 20-40m away from the stage. My current 80-200mm f/2.8D ED (NO VR) isn't providing much of a reach and was hoping I could use my sigma 150-500, but with a 5.6-6.3 aperture, that just seemed impossible. I, however, have found a 2nd hand 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED VR and was thinking of getting it instead of the 80-200. Selling price for the 80-200: 500$ Buying price for the 80-400: 1100$ Is it a good move? --hi...

I'm looking to convert Nikon Nikkor ED AF 80-200mm f/2.8 D lens to a E mount for Sony a6000? Will I lose the AF? What is the best converter for that? Any other budget 80-200mm F/2.8 suitable with a6000 suggestions are welcome!

For years I've been frustrated with back focus issues on my 80-200 f2.8 AF-D lens.  As I hold a black belt in procrastination, I've only just now attempted to use AF Fine Tune within the camera (D700, D750) to correct the issue. At 200mm f2.8, I have the D750 AF Fine Tune set to -20 and the end result isn't bad.  I came up with my own DIY calibration setup so I won't call it perfect by any means, but definitely an improvement. When testing it at 80mm f2.8, still using the -20 AF Fine Tune,...

The lens is about 10 years old but hardly used. Started using it on manual focus mode. I was able to use the manual focus mode until yesterday. But this morning when I tried to use I noticed that the manual focus ring is able to rotate but the lens doesn't focus. In other words the manual focus ring turns without any control.

So I wasn't sure which forum to put this on, so please don't rage that it's here. Also, warning, this is long.Basically, my dilemma is the following: like in the title, I own a D7100, and the AF-S 80-200mm f/2.8, which is a very potent combo for me, providing reach, good image quality, excellent focus capabilities, etc. I am going to be a junior in college this coming fall, and I was able to acquire a field pass to shoot all of the home soccer games. Having shot soccer in the past, my current...

I work with music shows and theatre so 2.8 is important to me. I also haven't a big budget. I have the old push-pull Nikkor 80-200 2.8 used in very old camera, but with the new Nikon D7200, I've found a back focus issue by design. I've taken a shot with lots of objects in front and in the back of the one I've focused and the image is overall very smooth. The 18-140 kit lens performs much better. What are the possible problems? I'm thinking to buy the Tamron 70-200 2.8 VC to make a substution....

I recently purchased a used 80-200mm 2.8D. I am using it with my D7000. I noticed pictures looked a little soft. The REALLY weird thing is if I use live view the pictures come out very sharp. I adjusted the fine tune to -20 and that helped. Pictures are almost as sharp as live view shots. Has anybody tried this combo? Does this sound like a problem with the lens? Since the pictures are coming out sharp in live view I believe the issue is on the camera side and perhaps this lens has a...

Hi I recently bought this lens, with some issues I knew about. It has some massive back-focus between 150 and 200, and very soft image. I took the lens to Nikon center in Romania (where I am living), but they told me that they are not able to repair/calibrate the lens as long as they are not offering repair services for this lens since 2012 ! More than this, they sent it to Nikon Germany, but once with their delivery, I personally asked Nikon Germany about repairing and they told me the same...
