Are there different versions of the 80-200 and which do you have that you like?

Yes, there are:

80-200/2.8 D ED MK II (push-pull)

80-200/2.8 D ED Dual Rings MK III

AF-S 80-200/2.8D IF-ED

Listing the lenses made is really useless without either personal experience/recommendation for one of them or what is different +- of each. Have you used all 3 versions and which did -you- like and why?

You don't get it ... =:-(

It doesn't matter what _I_ prefer - what do YOU prefer?

Push-pull or two-ring?

If it's push-pull then 80-200/2.8 D ED MK II is your only choice.

If it's two-ring you have to decide if you prefer no-built-in focus motor - then it's 80-200/2.8 D ED Dual Rings MK III.

Of you prefer built-in focus motor - then it's AF-S 80-200/2.8D IF-ED.

YES, It's THAT simple ...

Btw., those in-the-know who want to buy cheap get the non-D version ...
