70-210 f4-56 D samples with D800

Well I needed a cheap lens in the 70-200 range and decided to try a used nikon 70-210 F4-5.6 D lens. Well on D800 it has fast focus. Just got it used from KEH. Did my test shots of my chart on tripod live view autofocus. For 150 bucks its quite good. Best is at F10 in my opinion especially in the corners. So much for difraction as it looks best at F10 to me. Warning full size samples from 800.

Lens look weakest at 70mm.
