A classic.

Michael J. Edelman, Amazon

  • Summary: Truly a legendary lens, going back to its first incarnation as a manual lens in the 1970s. A friend who worked as a photojournalist in the 70s and 80s said it was one of his main go-to lenses, as it was sharp enough wide open to produce usable images at night without flash, and sharp enough in the middle that it was his "virtual zoom"- he could enlarge the center of an image and it was still sharp enough.

Great lens! Got mine used!

  • Excerpt: This lens is great. I use it on a D7100 and found that it seems the sharpest at f/4-f/8. f/2.8 has a tiny bit of CA but it's easy to fix in Lightroom. Since I got this lens, I haven't taken it off of my camera. My 18-200mm is gathering dust now, unless I need the wide end of the lens. This is a very solid lens and I'm not sure why it isn't more well-known. I got my lens used for $550 and you couldn't tell that it had been used before.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Must Have Lens!

Russ Flynn, Amazon
10 August 2014
  • Summary: This lens has been around for many, many years. There's a reason that Nikon has changed it VERY little from the time it was first released. It's perfect! Really. This is one of the best primes in my bag. Only slightly shorter than the MUCH more expensive 70-200 f/2.8, and better quality by a long shot.

Get one....

  • Summary: This is a great Nikon prime. Beautiful images...excellent build quality.....great for portraits and sports and it won't break the bank. Get a well cared for used one and save a few bucks. I did but had to send it to Nikon for recalibration shortly after purchase and I hated I had to but now I'm glad I did. My copy takes great pictures.

  • Summary: I have used this lens on my Nikon D-600 now for several months. It s very sharp, focuses accurately and quickly and is just the focal length I need in more than 50% of my shooting situation. Good lens, good focal length, good price.

One of Nikon's best!

MsTakin, Nikon

  • 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!

Superb!

Amazon Customer "Ani", Amazon

  • 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.
