Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D ED DSLR Lens - 1986
Nikon’s AF NIKKOR 80-200mm lens is a classic telephoto zoom lens that provides excellent low-light performance and depth of field control. Its lightning-fast, fixed f/2.8D aperture can capture brilliant photos and life-like high definition video all the way across its 80-200mm focal range. This lens is ideal for sports and wildlife photography when your subject may be moving at high speed. It’s also great for portrait photography where it can blur backgrounds into a beautiful backdrop of color. The lens is made of Nikon’s extra-low dispersion glass that corrects chromatic aberrations. These aberrations cause discoloration where light and dark portions of the image meet and can ruin a perfectly good photograph. The lens is also treated with Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating that reduces light reflection to further increased the image quality this lens is capable of providing. Whether you’re a professional or an amateur, if you take photography seriously you need this lens in your Nikon collection.
Designed for Beautiful Low-Light Photography
The aperture of this NIKKOR lens is capable of opening up to a setting of f/2.8 which allows the maximum amount of light into the camera’s sensor. This means you can shoot at high shutter speeds while still achieving crisp, vibrant images. Because the aperture can maintain its f/2.8 setting throughout its entire zoom range, you can maintain a consistent exposure from any distance. To further improve image quality in low-light setting, the lens elements have been treated with Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating that increases light transmission from the outer lens to the sensor by reducing the amount of light that’s reflected off the glass surfaces. Since more light reaches the sensor, it can produce even clearer images.
Maximum Depth-of-Field Control and Beautiful Bokeh
The AF Zoom-NIKKOR lens provides excellent depth-of-field control across its entire zoom range. This allows you to separate your subject from the background by creating a soft bokeh that contrasts the sharp detail of whatever is in the foreground. This effect works in still photography as well as videography so your video footage will look as beautiful as your still photography. The Extra-Low Dispersion glass Nikon uses to manufacture the lens elements further aids in creating sharp image contrast. It corrects discolorations caused by chromatic aberrations and improves contrast even at the lens’ maximum aperture setting to create a deep depth of field that gives your photographs and videos a realistic feel.
A-M stands for Auto-Manual Mode. Thanks to a mechanism incorporated in the lens barrel, smooth focusing operation in Manual focus mode is realized in the same way as users have become accustomed to with conventional manual-focus lenses by adding an appropriate torque to the focus ring.
