2 touch zooms internally, you will not see a extension of the lens, but in 1 touch, its the pull out version, where one needs to pull the front part of the lens to zoom.

the 80-200mm f2.8 ED (one-touch) is optically identical to the 80-200 f2.8 ED (two touch)

Both are internal zoom and both internal focusing.. the one touch uses a single ring for both focusing and zooming.. this is the one touch ring.. more like a piston action.

the 2 touch version uses 2 rings.. one for focusing and one for zooming. The 80-200 AF-D ED f/2.8 two touch is some what lighter then the one touch version (more glass and metal used) and the two touch version is also more expensive. going for second hand between 950-1150.

The one touch version goes for 650-800 second hand.
