+: sharp, sharp, sharp
+: autofocus spot on
+: incredible impression of mechanical quality
+: I LOVE old-fashioned aperture rings, but that's just me...
+: bokeh better than expected after reading reviews (perhaps I am not critical enough?)
I was aware of all the minuses before I got it and they didn't stop me, but still, here they are:
-: need to switch betw. auto and man focus
-: can struggle (better: take some time) to acquire focus from one end of the range to the other
BUT the sharpness of this one is unbelievable
A tripod and raised mirror on a D800 and you are in heaven ...
Manual focus is accurate and smooth but as already commented elsewhere the autofocus switch seems a little bit weak
I have put it in manual mode and there it will stay for the rest of my life ...
This is a comprehensive review of this 200mm f4d, so please read to the end.
If wildlife, macro photography and telephoto portraiture is your thing, then look no further.
I have owned this lens for years now, and I treasure it.
The Images that can potentially come out of this beautifully crafted joyfulness will take your breath away, and help you realize that nature is far far more beautiful and magical than you could of ever of realized without it.
This lens in It's current form i feel is coming to the end of It's life, I have a sneaky feeling Nikon will soon be replacing this Gem.
It has been around a long time now and I can tell you this much, no matter what lens Nikon replaces this with, to bring it up to date with It's new look line up of lenses, It will not be bettered, it will just have new clothes surrounding It's perfect optical design i.e afs etc.
Buy one now is what I am suggesting to you,
Maybe this is why Nikon still hasn't replaced this 200mm version yet, don't miss out because you want to wait for afs etc, no afs is part of this lenses beauty, I love listening to the most beautiful whispering quality sounds as it finds It's perfect focus, such a joy on a Pro camera.
A joy also on a non Pro camera in manual focus, it is a joy to use, trust me.
This Lenses strengths are as follows.
Wide open at f4 the Images are perfectly sharp across the whole frame on a full frame camera, at f4 the images do lack a little contrast, but nothing that cannot be easily corrected with careful and loving processing.
Once this lens gets to 5.6 and beyond, contrast and colour reproduction are mesmerizing.
Bokeh at close distance is a buttry dreamy work of art, for me the Bokeh of this lens touches my soul and kisses it.
My lens is at it's best from 5.6 up to f9, after which it starts to suffer from diffraction, which is something every lens has to put up with, even closed right down it is far better than most and can be used for creative purposes, after all a lens is just a tool for your creative endeavours.
As far as distortion goes, forget it, what minimal distortion there is, is completely irrelevant in the field.
Focus manually with the beautifully designed and wonderfully smooth focusing barrel for close up macro work ok
Trying to use the auto focus on very near critters will frustrate you. Close up macro is all about feel and technique, use manual.
Auto focus works like a dream on birds and on a pro camera will even track bees, well I have learn't that mine can if I play by my lenses rules, you are entering into a relationship when you own one of these, a relationship that should be treasured, It is all about give and take and the willingness to learn, humbly :-)
Focus is quick and precise at tele ranges, it is only at macro distances you will find the lens may hunt a bit, like I've said, use manual for very close distance.
This lens will last you a lifetime if you look after it, the Nikon lens hood for it screws in beautifully and never falls of, is sturdy and also protects the front glass element, I never leave home without mine attached, its a part of the lens after all.
The tripod mount is a also a joy to use, loosen the screw and it glides around making hand held photography wonderfully comfy.
Fit a tripod to it and you have one very sturdy setup.
I have not found a weakness in this lens, any weakness I may of felt this lens had, I now realize we're my weaknesses.
The camera the lens, both tools, become a Master craftsman and learn how to use them :-)
If you wish to see what this lens is capabble of then please take a look at my website, if Amazon will allow it ( steven-poulton.artistwebsites.com ) all Images of Bees and butterflies are taken with this lens, and many more.
Investment in this lens will lead you on a journey of discovery and wonderment, the like of which you would never know without it.
If you are ready for the joy this lens can bring, I salute you :-)
Don't expect it to focus fast, so it's no use for action photography, but even used as a standard lens it gives beautiful, rich images.
It's also compact and light weight. I love experimenting with this lens.
For macro work you'll want to use a flash unless it's a bright sunny day :o).
Its never off my camera, because it doubles up as a great telephoto.
