Nikon 80-200mm Af-D 2 ring Softness
Recently bought the 80-200mm instead of the 180 wich i also had been looking at.
I really like the colors and build of the lens, and it's pretty much perfekt from 80 to 140mm, but from there on it keeps getting softer and softer especially at 200mm 2.8. Is this normal or can it be fixed? I think it's quite bad at 200mm, mostly when i use it close up, it's alot better shooting further away.
Does anyone have a 80-200mm that is sharp at 200mm 2.8 ?
Heres a few samples.
