    Cons: - vignetting wide open, HUGE vignetting @200mm - flimsy tripod collar

    Pros: - very good image quality wide open - excellent image quality stopped down - fast, accurate AF - handling - bokeh

    Summary: Optically better than 80-200 AF-D and 70-200 AF-S VR I, about on par with 70-200 AF-S VR II. The tripod collar is weak, the collars of te newer 70-200 are much better.

    Cons: No weather sealing(((

    Pros: Perfect build quality, fast and accurate AF (especially on D700/D3), tracking of moving subjects is awesome, No errors!!! Rounded diaphragm gives pleasing bokeh up to f5.6, at every aperture!!!! And of course it's SUPER SHARP!!!!

    Summary: This lens much better then 80-200 push-pull and 2 ring versions, handles better then 70-200 vr, and gives sharper picture... I don't handle 70-200 vrII, maybe vrII is sharper, but overall image quality of 80-200 AF-S will be still better then 70-200 VRII. I like professional Nikkors with AF-S and D feature (17-35,28-70,80-200) they are stunning. I have enough money for newest lenses, but images from those lenses beyond any concern!!!

    Cons: heavy, no VR, bad flare

    Pros: Sharp at all appertures, focus lock button, there is an apperture ring.

    Summary: This is one of Nikon's best lenses. In my opinion it's sharper than 70-200 f/2,8 VR. The only negative thing is its bulk size weight too much.
