Nikon Nikkor AF 80-200 mm f/2.8D ED

10. Autofocus

There is nothing to complain about the tested Nikkor in this category, although it doesn’t have an inbuilt motor (in this case, it was helped significantly by the body it was connected to, the D200 model for our testing purposes).

The lens’s autofocus has a FULL/LIMIT option and, fortunately, even with the full option it works relatively quietly and quickly. At the limit option the autofocus is even faster.

We have nothing to complain about the accuracy of the lens’s autofocus. It missed in only 5% of the cases during our tests. Most of those cases happened at 200 mm focal length, but we have to admit that even at this focal length the lens didn’t go completely crazy and didn’t go through the whole range, as is frequently the case in many cheaper lenses.

The tested Nikkor didn’t show any tendency towards front or back focusing.
