Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by the performance. This lens produces good results when stopped down. At f/8 and f/11, especially at the 80mm end, the lens produces sharp, contrasty images from edge to edge. Given the low price of this lens, the performance is actually pretty remarkable. Even distortion is minimal, though still clearly visible at 200mm. There is no focus distance scale, and obviously, no depth of field information. Softness at the extremes. Avoid the widest and smallest apertures and you’ll get sharp, contrasty results, though. READ FULL REVIEW
Other Nikon 80-200mm f/4.5-5.6D AF Reviews
The 80-200mm f/4.5-5.6 D AF was Nikon’s cheapest, lightest, junkiest plastic AF telephoto zoom ever. In spite of this, it works fine. The 80-200mm f4.5-5.6 D AF performs much better than you’d think. Images are sharp, crisp, clear, well exposed and colorful on the D3 and D300.READ FULL REVIEW
