Re: frustration with 80-200 f2.8 D

Clearly something is wrong, as this is a very sharp lens. Request an RMA and send it to Nikon Melville, LI, NY for a quotation on a cleaning and alignment. It will be udner $200...how much so, I don't know. You'll have a perfectly aliigned lens when it is returned.

ps. I own the lens and had it aligned at Melville after getting the autofouc ring fixed, so I am speaking from first hand experience. Also, if you look at Thom Hogan's blog on Nikon repairs, you'll find other similar good experiences with Nikon's Melville repair center.
