I've owned a lot of fast glass in this range including the 70-200 VR 1, Tamron 70-200 2.8 and now a 2 ring 80-200 f2.8. Of all these lenses the 80-200 Push Pull has been my favorite. I know this is personal and can not be measured but I really liked the images I got from that lens and regret ever getting rid of it.

Searching the net several people have said the same thing! The only version tested on photo-zone is the 2 ring which is still made, but we will never know what changes to manufacturing were made during the 20+ years since it was introduced. It seems to be very transmissive of green and red, and the green bokeh in the photo above seemed different to what I have been seeing from say the AFD 50mm f1.4.
