Re: Lenses for a D4

At what aperture is the 80-200 sharp?  My 70-200 VR I requires f/3.2, but much better than f/4 lens.  The 70-200 f/4 is supposed to be sharp wide open.  It also has a nice weight advantage.  But if your 80-200 is great at 2.8 or 3.2 I would stick with that.  On my D4, the 70-200 VRI lives at F/3.2 and I often shoot at ISO 8000+ for night events!  The extra 2/3 stop really helps.

My event kit is the D4 + 14-24, 50 f1.4 and 70-200 f2.8, 1.4 TC and a D7100 for backup.
