Nikon introduced the Nikkor AF-S VR 70-200 mm f/2.8G IF-ED in 2003. After this new market entry, many people were worried about the future of the Nikkor AF 80-200 mm f/2.8D ED, which had already been on the market since 1996 with similar parameters, but no stabilization. Now we know that both lenses have their own place on the market and the simple reason for this is price: over 700$ between the two versions. Many photography fans are able to shell out 900$ for the Nikkor AF 80-200 mm f/2.8D ED, but 1600$ for the newer Nikkor is simply too much for many of them.

Nikon has many competitors in this segment, such as the slightly cheaper but highly regarded Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 (with or without Macro versions). Since we have already tested the Sigma, it is worth checking the differences between the two lenses and we welcome photo enthusiasts to scrutinize our reviews.
