    Putting it in another way:

    AFS 70-200mm F2.8 ... the (holy) angel
    AFS 28-70mm F2.8 ..... the father
    AFS 17-35mm F2.8 ..... the son

    its the holy ghost la.

    now with digital i feel tt the trinity is nt really gd anymore, or rather, just the 28-70.

    its not here(wide) not there(tele).

    To me the 70-200 should be classed as a archfiend rather than archangel.
    It is the only one amongst the three that doesn't have an aperture ring.

    The 80-200 AFS was one of the original trio of AFS Nikkor-zoom lenses.

    This trinity is good only for film bodies... in the digital age, you might want to consider a new set of trinity:

    AFS 12-24mm
    AFS 17-55mm
    AFS 70-200mm

    I'd give a slight OT here, trinity means a set of three.

    Holy Trinity refers to the Father, Son, Holy ghost in Christianity context. So guys, don't mix it up and get a PM from the mods/admins about religious discussion/desecration

    Excuse me, lots of people do.
    Do you really need AFS and VR to take photos? If you do, then I feel very sorry for you.

    I'd stand with you with this question.

    Time to forget about getting a AI-S 500 f/4

    AFS doesnt work on film bodies? F5 is pretty old, and I believe it still can use AFS lenses.
