If you follow my blog at all, you know I love the Nikon 70-200mm f2.8G ED VR II AF-S. It is one of my go to lenses. Search within the blog and you will see several articles about this excellent lens. It is a love story.
Recently, I had an opportunity to buy an inexpensively priced copy of the Nikon 80-200mm f2.8 ED (two ring model) so I tried it.
