Pros: Extraordinary optics

Cons: Nothing to object, sin does not have the af

Opinion: One of the best optics ever produced at this focal length along with 80-200 big whiskers, when used on canon 1d series, replace the camera's focus glass with the one equipped with a broken picture stigmometer for a perfect, accurate and precise mass In the focus, it will be a great pleasure to use this optic in these conditions on the nikon d700 and 300 and 800e no problem just set the memu management software for optics and have fun

Pros: excellent optical quality, pleasing blurred, flawless mechanics.

Cons: Nothing for her age.

Opinion: What about a lens like that? Excellent as all nikon a time. Crisp thrilling. optical quality in all senses and mechanical precision. The ring of focus is soft and pleasant like all AI-S. For those accustomed to manual focus is a real satisfaction. I found it used to 250 euro in excellent condition from an amateur photographer who used it only for a few portraits. Did I steal away. Now some people do not appreciate more such lenses. Now there is autofocus and these lenses are no longer for certain individuals. I'll keep sretto for life. Highly recommended !! A real lust.

Pros: Sharpness, smooth ring of focusing, ED lenses. Integrated lens hood. magic blurred.

Cons: Second-cost, sensitive lenses. Unbalanced center of gravity forward.

Opinion: Compared to the 200 f4, this is more crisp and clear (the 200 is softer and ... painting, if we want) but the 180 has made more fuss, thanks to increased blurry and more vivid colors. rnCosta dear, I have paid 390euri (well maintained), but I do not think you are less than 350 if decenti.rnIo conditions the use of D700 and D3 and I must say that the yield is typically Nikon, brilliant and battered. The focus ring slips beautifully (like the 105 f2.5) and the sharpness is already good at f2.8, even if it is from f4 and older that gives the best of himself. Smaller apertures (22 and 32) hit hard diffraction ... but then, who uses them? !! It 'a nice beast to govern while shooting, is also pesantino and a little unbalanced forward due to its taper, and then to accept the challenge is great: no VR, no AF, important focal length (missing only the strong wind and someone who makes you the scherzi from behind while photographers!). rnSoffre a bit 'of AC (red / magenta dominant especially), so must be used appropriately to avoid them as much possibile.rnHa reason Ken Rockwell claiming that the 200mm f4 ais is great, but the 180 is superb , since the ED lenses do their duty trasmettebdo light without diperderla, blur and is really gelatinous dream: what is in focus is engraved in the crystal, and everything blurs fantastically creating a beautiful effect tapering off . Bokeh at f2.8 is almost the same as f4, then he begins to schiudersi.rnQuando dim light is' off 'a bit' frowning (exactly like the 105 f2.5). They are slow to give their best when light shines like crystals, or they can disappoint. In this respect, perhaps, are the most effective modern Nikon projects, although the yield is more silky and less vitrea.rnE 'a fantastic gem, to be guarded con care (the rear lens is only scratching at her) and pull off when you want to get something superb in terms of photography, although I think it is more for lovers than for ordinary users.

Pros: Sharpness at all apertures except f/32 - Weight and size limited - Handiness - Construction optical / mechanical design at the top - Colours - Blur

Cons: It 's just manual focus and therefore not very suitable for dynamic photo and action. The first lens is a "ED" and therefore a bit 'tricky because most "tender" a normale.rnConviene protect it with a UV filter. Only machines with top of the range you can get data recovery.

Opinion: I have this light for about 30 years. After years of inactivity, with digital, thanks to Nikon's policy to maintain the same bayonet "F", is reliving momentirndi original splendor with the new rooms set D. It 'a real pleasure to come back to focus in manual mode (with the limitations mentioned above), set the diaframmarngirando a ring, look with calm precision and the focus point more appropriate ... so back to shoot with the conviction that still master of it-rntuazione. From an optical point of view, the performance is superb and as sharp as that colors which are a bit 'old-fashioned way with chromatic less of a contrast compared to today's optical RNTO "N" crystals. And what about the bokeh ...! at full aperture is fabulous! rnSempre more often in my bag to replace the 70/200 8.2 VR. Lose in convenience, but you want to put the satisfaction!
