The Nikkor AF 70-210mm f/4 delivered decent but not exceptional results. The resolution is excellent at 70mm but a little soft at 135mm @ f/4 and 210mm @ f/4 so the speed advantage compared to current consumer grade zoom lenses is somewhat relativized – stopping down to f/5.6 is advisable here. Despite the full format design vignetting is a little high at 210mm at wide-open aperture but otherwise it is well controlled. The level of distortions is unusually low for a zoom lens. Lateral CAs are moderate but purple fringing can be a problem in harsh contrast situations. The build quality is relatively decent although the approach is a bit dated. … READ FULL REVIEW

I recommend this old lens very highly if you can get around the slight autofocus errors with your particular camera and your lens. Its fast f/4 aperture, low price, super close focussing and great optical performance make it very tempting. Of course if you are shooting action the AF speed of the 70-210/4 may be too slow, especially if you are still using one of the primitive single-sensor AF cameras. “¦ READ FULL REVIEW
