Re: Sports - Old Nikon 80-200 or modern third party lens

I read that the old f2.8 was a slow screw drive lens and I believe it. I handled it but not on my own camera. Nikon did not catch up with Canon on AF for a long long time. The push-pull zoom could pump air around the camera which might make it require more cleaning. This kind of lens is very commonly used for sports and understandably doesn't offer much in that sense compared to the competition. For aperture, price and IQ seems good though.
