AF 80-200mm f/2.8D ED (Two Touch) Reputation...

David H. Hartman:
What is the performance of the AF 80-200mm f/2.8D ED (Two Touch) particularly at 200mm, large apertures and near focus distance? Is there a problem? Is there any one here with personal experience?

bad focus. i had that problem 10 years ago so i sold it for a 70-200/2.8 VR2 :o :o :o
read my 2 80-200/2.8AF articles for some background.

it can be adjusted, just a lot of trouble. i did that on mine, now it focuses perfectly. (not the 2 ring version but principle is the same)

David H. Hartman:
Thanks for the reply. I'll check out your article.

David H. Hartman:
Great article: Richard, you hit the nail on the head. I basically have an amazing 80-155mm f/2.8 zoom with a 200mm soft focus feature.  :o :( >:(

Thanks

Dave
