gr8.... but i don't like live view
yes nikon 80-200 2.8 is also somewhere in my list .....but now that nikon have released nikon 70-200 f4 AFS VRIII I will rethink abt it in my dream list
nikon 80-200 2.8 is a AF lens and was selling for as low as 700$ thats 35k it dont have nano coating,no VR no AFS and I think no ED glass ....but its a bargain for that price
the new nikon 70-200 f4 have latest VR which can work as low as 1/10 sec and give sharp pics at 200mm @ 1/25 ss
prabhu 70-200 2.8 vr2 cost twice the f4 version....it weights twice and bigg ....i will see these when going for something like that.
i was initially planning to get 80-200 from US instead of d300 but then 80-200 is AF and i would need a better body in any case...D7000 have lots of issues like sensor oil leak and poor focussing soo people stopped me from purchasing used blindly.
