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...
OK, so the aperture ring on D-type lenses can be locked to its smaller opening (highest value, marked in orange on the ring), which makes the aperture able to be automatically controlled by the camera. With this lens and other D-type lenses I have tried, that's how it works on a D200. The D7000 though, does not do that with any of the D lenses I've mounted on it. Is this a D7000 lack of feature or just a setting on the camera that I just can't find? The D7000 manual doesn't mention anything...
I just bought a used AF 80-200 F2.8D. It came without caps and tripod mount ring.

I'm including an image since I also noticed that there may be variations in the lenses because the images I see online don't *exactly* match what I have. Thanks for any help or suggestions. Used AF 80-200 F2.8D on...

Hello everybody, I having a problem with AF on my D7000 and 80-200mm lens. When I auto focus on something small like birds butterfly's it's hunting for focus like crazy. When it's finally finds a spot it stops but image are not sharp. One time it's sharp another time it's just OK but not pin sharp. I just replaced the motor in lens. I used to have D3100 before repair of the lens and it was working fine. Than I sold D3100 and got D7000. When I take picture of people it's much better but still...
