Re: Nikon 80-200 2.8 Focus

Not sure why you resurrected a 5 year old post

Yes, it is a known and well documented issue with the otherwise excellent AF-D 80-200mm f/2.8 Nikon lens. Lens will back focus from 160mm to 200mm but only when shooting close to minimum focusing distance .

As I mentioned in another post: I had two copies of this lens and both were showing this behavior (with D200 and D2H). Then when I did some research I found plenty of people complaining about that. See for instance the 2 threads below:



Other than this issue, the lens is fantastic and I regret selling it.
