Someone made a comment today about the Nikon 180mm F2.8 being a maligned tool in the right hands. The starving man’s 200mm F2.
I don’t know why its not particularly favoured, it’s half the weight and price as a 70-200mm F2.8, optically as good (if not better), but maybe an awkward FL??
For me, its a nice addition to the tele end of my kit, which now comprises a 24-70mm F2.8, 50mm F1.8D, 85mm F1.8D and 180mm F2.8D.
I have a small gap yet to fill, and I am sorely tempted by the Nikon 135mm F2 DC over the 70-200mm F2.8……
