  • Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED DX AF-S Nikkor

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    light weight, sharpness, absence of CA
    slow focus

    This lens surprised my friends and myself on it's very good quality color rendition, contrast and sharpness. The focus is a little slow buts when I am shooting wide angle and want to bring a small light weight tele-zoom "for just in case" this lens is perfect for my needs

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

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    high sharpness, superb color rendition, light weight, excellent build quality
    AF mode is never completely disengaged when in M position

    Images taken with this lens are rendered with high sharpness, contrast and vivid colour saturation. Wide open high quality images are produced and when this lens is stopped down from f/4.0 to f/11 it's almost impossible to get a better image quality. This is one of the greatest Nikkors of all times in optical performace
