80-200 2.8 AFS!!!
« on: December 10, 2020, 12:19:07 »
well, havent dismantled it yet since the workshop has to be cleaned and its too damn cold :o :o :o

the AF works, doesnt squeak but VERY slow. it travels with the velocity of dripping molasses. ::)

i wonder if I could just polish the stator as what a legendary Nikon repairman told's worth a try. I hope it's just some wires touching the body causing a short.

My AFS is super fast like all the other AF-S Pro f/2.8 Zooms
