Nikkor 80-200 2.8 ED AF-D

My first outing today with this lens. Wow, this is a lovely lens. My copy is sharp as a tack at all focal lengths, even at 200mm f 2.8.

Focusing with my D300 is spot on and very fast.

The racing pics above are from the RAW, no adjustment at all for colors or sharpness. Only two adjustments are a little fill light and slight crop. Nothing else whatsoever.

The other two pics were taken as test shots at 200mm 2.8, focus on antenna in one and on lookout box in other. No adjustment whatsoever from RAW.

Last B&W shot is cropped and Silver Efex, I did no other adjustments, great subject isolation it gives.

Only thing is now.......too easy to get sharp photos with this without sets a new standard for I am going to get even more picky now about any more lenses to match this one....

Definitely worth the money, fantastic lens.
