Coming from years of owning Canon DSLRs.....I'm slowly building my arsenal of Nikon AF lenses for the D700 and D800E.
I borrowed a friend's 80-200mm f2.8D lens yesterday and tried it out on the D700 today. It seems quite good, comparable to my Canon 70-200/4L (non-IS) lens....but heavier. This weekend I'll see how this lens performs on the D800E (and the D2X).
Is anyone else using this lens? Your thoughts? Certainly more affordable than the latest 70-200/2.8 VR alternative.
As a side note....these images remind me of why I am keeping the D700. Images from the 36mp D800E are great, but the D700 is still a wonderful camera in its own right.
