Re: Any reason not to get the 80-200mm 2.8 AF-D

The only reason I can think of to not get the 80-200mm is that you can get the legendary 85mm 1.4D for about the same price.

If you're looking for a portrait lens in the $1000 range, I think there is no reason to look any further than the 85mm - well, I take that back, there's also the 105mm DC and 135mm DC.
