Just an advise, do try the lense from your friends before spending your money, especially wide open.

I do not mean anything saying the lense no good... Just try it first and if possible compare to Nikon 70-200 f2.8 VR... Then you decide. All of my friends already sold off thiers. There should be a number of unit floating in the used market now.  cool2.gif
*
i agree with voip...
i myself skipped the nikon 85...
went to zeiss 85 then sold it off...
and got myself a zeiss 28...

from what i saw...the nikon 85 is easily beaten by the 70-200 at similar focal length...
the only advantage though is the wide aperture...=)

??? Why? I saw great performance on D300....  thumbup.gif

D3 the 70-200 should be even better with shallower DoF right?

Anyway, I had never play the 70-200 VR on FF because as I remember the only Nikon FF is D3... And I need more people to buy D3 because I have difficulty loaning one to play...  notworthy.gif

it's very good indeed for d3...
but as good as it is on d300...
i want my d300 back!

IIRC from the various charts i've seen Nikon's 70-200 2.8 is primarily optimized for a crop body (seemed like the smarter choice before the coming of the D3 due to the D2's sensor), and the Canon's version for FF. (it was released before the 1Ds Mark II IIRC)

I think given time, Nikon will reoptimize the 70-200 for FF.
*
yup quite true...
there were no FF during the 70-200 introduction..
and yes i hope to see the FF optimized 70-200 VR N...soon...=)
