I have the excellent Nikkor 180mm 2.8 ED AI-S, and was wondering if to get also the Nikkor AF 180mm 2.8D ED at a fire sale.

I tried the lens few years ago when was buying my Nikon Df and was very impressed by the built quality. Unfortunately didn’t take pictures that time.

It has a different much more complex optical formula and was wondering if it’s worth trying it?


Here is a link from Gary's thread where I posted some sample images . . .

. . . fab lens . . . relatively lightweight and portable . . . tack sharp . . . great bokeh and isolation wide open . . . does suffer from CA issues when shooting into bright light . . . but with the correct framing and orientation it can be killer . . . relatively inexpensive at 300 bucks or less . . . highly recommended!
