Re: D200 and AF 80-200 2.8 ED Push pull 1st version

Perhaps because I used it on film for 10 years before digital, I like the 80-200 a lot more on film or FX than on DX. I find it not wide enough on DX.

I tended not to use it much with my DX cameras, and eventually made the choice to replace it in my backpack with an 80-400vr.

Once I got a D700, I decided I needed both lenses, and so I found I could pull a flash (SB800) out of the backpack and put the 80-200 in its place. I find the 80-200 to be near perfect for photographing people at events like the Renaissance Faire.
