Hey guys.

i would love u guys to share ur experience with a Nikon 70-200mm f2.8VR & Nikkon 80-200mm f2.8. Good and Bad Points are welcome.

cos i was thinking of getting a 70-200mm at first , but its at 2.6k new one.
i rather'd get a 80-200 and a D200(newbody&batterygrip) & a monopod for that kinda sum.

So i just wanna check out some experience with guys for the equipment stated above.

:):)

hmm... getting a D200? So I assume your current body isn't as 'good' as the D200? If thats the case, its important to balance body quailty and lens quaility. no point using such an expensive lens on a inadequate body right?

However, lens prices deteriote a lot slower than body prices so if yr willing to wait a year to buy a better body, i say go for the AF-S VR!!


only then will your photos make people go WOW
(sry, couldn't resist ;p)

i see :)

Do a quick search on reviews of the 2 lenses and you'll realise that their IQs are very very similar. focusing speeds are also quite on par. So that extra load of cash you'll be spending on the 70-200 is just the AFS and VR.

btw, if you have enough money to buy those amazing lenses, why don't you rent a D200, a 70-200VR and a 80-200 for a day or 2? ;) Go play around with them and you be the judge.

No confusion, either one is good and you will not go wrong.
Whats left in the decision making is probably the budget
