"Die Serienversion des 2.8/80-200 erschien als Schiebezoomausfhrung. Relativ gro und mit fast 2 kg nicht gerade leicht. Deutlich markierter Goldring als Hinweis auf die Verwendung von ED-Glas, dadurch hervorragende Schrfeleistung. Eingebautes und drehbares Stativgewinde und farbig markierte Schrfentiefeskala. Sehr teuer, hervorragend verarbeitet und unter Nikon-Fans bereits jetzt schon ein begehrter Klassiker. In verhltnismig kleinen Stckzahlen hergestellt ab der Seriennummer 181091."

Here some pictures os the actual image quality which is just stunning!!! Shocked
Sharpness wide open is perfect, great contrast and bokeh wide open, stopped down even further sharp.
Sad that the following AF-D, AF-S versions didn't achieve this quality of glass.

Beautiful samples of what is clearly a very superior lens. I have a newer version, which I have always regarded as one of the best, but this older version looks even better

It's the result of engineers with a unlimited budget to achieve optical perfection.

And that was the reason it became so expensive that it's really rare to find today.

At that time, this was the price list: Only the 300mm 2.8 AIS ED was more expensive.

That lens is a BEAST! Great pictures, very sharp and looks like the lens still holds its own without reservation! Thanks for sharing!

At 2kg (!) more of a collectors item than anything Id like to carry around, but the samples sure look great.

May I ask how much you paid?

Heres more info on the lens:

I got two Samples of this Great Lens -

One near mint - a Grand ()
One as Good User - about 800 (which I'm actually reselling now)

Weight only is an issue If you have the wrong camerastrap.
With my Sunsniper Steel&Bear I can Take the Lens On travels
On Holiday a Whole Day Long

Me neither - but optically this lens seems to be on par with many fixed focal lengths.

Especially compared to its later follower 80-200 2.8 of Nikon, this lens beats them easily.

The original MF lens certainly is a landmark design. Marco Cavina has some interesting details here:
http://www.marcocavina.com/articoli_fotografici/Nikkor_80-200_story/00_pag.htm

While i've seen the MF lens being sold here once, i never had the opportunity to take pictures with one.
The later first AF version however is ... quite weak, as is the AF Nikkor 2.8/35-70mm (i have both of them). The Minolta AF 2.8/80-200mm APO (1988, i think) is way better than the AF Nikkor 2.8/80-200mm ED.

I like it!
That's a very sharp lens.

Amazing lens.

I have the Tamron equivalent to it -- the SP 30A with Tamron's LD glass. Tokina made one as well, using its SD glass, but it generally isn't as good as the Tamron. I'd really like to see a comparison between the Nikon and the Tamron. Anybody have both?


PostPosted: Wed Jan 03, 2018 7:48 am    Post subject: Reply with quote

I actually haD both.
While I was very amazed by the Tamron, once the Nikkor was in my hands there was no doubt that this is the better lens.
The Nikkor is able to perform very close to fixed focal length lenses, while the Tamron (to me) is a very good zoom.

There is something magical about the Nikkor 80-200mm 2.8 AIS ED.
