One of Nikon's best!

  • Summary: I've had this lens for a few years; bought it from another pro who's been borrowing it from me ever since. Sharp, clear, lightweight with great bokeh, the well-balanced Nikkor 180mm f/2.8D IF-ED is one prime lens that regularly goes with me on all assignments. Packs easily with the hard case. I photograph motorsports and this one's perfect for drag racing shots on the start line. Love it!

Sharp and lovely but purple fringing!

  • Excerpt: This lens was super sharp and fast, but the purple fringing was too much. If this happened every so often, it'd be no big deal, but it happened on nearly every shot.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh

Nikon 180mm f/2.8D ED-IF AF Nikkor review by Glutte

Glutte, slrgear.com
11 April 2013
  • Summary: Mine is the AF 180mm ED non D model. I would have given this lens a perfect score if I had not been owner of a Nikon 180mm 2.8 ED ai-s before. This MF lens was sharper at f/2.8 and completely free of chromatic aberration and fringing.Bokey at 2.8 was a dream. It was looking like a wreck but took incredible pictures...and I sold it. Very bad idea! From 5.6 there is no difference between these 2 lenses. But a f/2.8 is supposed to be good at f/2.8.
  • Pros: Very well built, Sharpness from f/4,exceptional lens after f/4, good bokey.
  • Cons: chromatic aberration and color fringing f2.8,

  • Summary: I want to use this lens more, I need to use it more! It is one of the sweetest lenses hands down. I know some will say it is heavy and that is true, especially attached to a Nikon D2H or D2X but I like working out my biceps when I shoot. If you decide to purchase this lens you will 1.) love and 2.) really love it...at least I do! But don't let my enthusiasm of its greatness influence you decision, heck you can always rent lenses these days before you buy.
