  • Nikon 180mm f/2.8D ED-IF AF Nikkor

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Well thoughtout, wellbuilt professional lens without unprofessional frilly stuff.

    Quick and precise AF on D600 and D50.
    Light for a 180mm lens
    Build quality is absolutely stunning.
    Repeatable IQ.

    At -3.5 stop:
    really really high resolution.
    No pincushioning and no distortion
    Essentially no vignetting
    Bokeh is right

    It does 180mm/3.5 - and does it right. If you want 300mm performance - walk the 30m.

    Freehand indoor shooting at acceptable ISO levels 1-400 is easily possible. Fast enough for Nature, surfing and generall sports.
