Nikon AF Nikkor 180mm f/2.8D ED IF is simply an outstanding lens. The lens does not seem to have any weak points. Image resolution is very solid on both cropped as well as full frame cameras across the aperture range. Color reproduction is very accurate with well contained color fringing and flare.

Nikon came out with this lens in the 1990s to replace the venerable but sharp as a tack 180mm f2.8 manual focus lens which unlike the canon equivalent was external focus. even though the lens was a staple of news and sports shooters the stiff external focus was hard to use for that.

If I could only use one lens on my D600/D810, this would be it. The portraits I take with this are also sharp with amazing bokeh, color that is eye-poppingly good and the perspective flattening always ensures that models and clients I take on look their best and most flattering! It's so great.

This lens is great. I use it on a D7100 and found that it seems the sharpest at f/4-f/8. f/2.8 has a tiny bit of CA but it's easy to fix in Lightroom. Since I got this lens, I haven't taken it off of my camera. My 18-200mm is gathering dust now, unless I need the wide end of the lens.

I've had this lens for a few years; bought it from another pro who's been borrowing it from me ever since. Sharp, clear, lightweight with great bokeh, the well-balanced Nikkor 180mm f/2.8D IF-ED is one prime lens that regularly goes with me on all assignments. Packs easily with the hard case.

I love this lens for outdoor use. Very nice to picture people. It is somewhat long when carrying around. Also people will notice you! Definitely a lens I recommend.

    Fast, very sharp, robust.

    No weather seal, a bit heavy and long.

This is possibly the sharpest lens I have ever shot with. It produces beautiful colour and I loved using it to take portraits on my D70. Really good for portraits and for sport if you can get close enough to the action.

    Light weight for its fast 2.8 Aperture., Solid build., Sharp. Even at 2.8, Beautiful Bokeh., Built in hood., Couples well with a tele converter

  • -

    Sometimes it doesn't seem long enough. ie sports photography, Only really practical for head shot portraits unless you have alot of space to back up. I mainly used it for this anyway.
