Great lens! Got mine used!


from Troy, AL  -  Photo Enthusiast

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. This is a very solid lens and I'm not sure why it isn't more well-known. I got my lens used for $550 and you couldn't tell that it had been used before. On the Nikon website, this lens sells for $1000, so I like to think I got a great deal on this!


One of Nikon's best!


from Long Beach, CA, USA

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 photograph motorsports and this one's perfect for drag racing shots on the start line. Love it!

Excellent portrait lens!


from Cornwall, ON, Canada

Over the years I have owned several "Portrait" lenses ranging from 85mm f1.4 to 150mm Medium format ones from a well known German manufacture on a well known Swedish camera . All great lenses. However, I have never used a lens that is as good when used wide open. I worked for years professionally often needing images in the 30 x 40 inch range for retail display. This lens along with Kodachrome 25 was always my first choice. Out of the thousands of images this lens has produced, I would estimate about 95 percent of them were taken a f2.8, it is just that good.

Great lens at a great price


from Connecticut  -  Pro Photographer

This lens is one of Nikon's best kept secrets. The 180mm is a light-weight (and considerably less expensive) alternative to one of Nikon's 2.8 zooms. If you don't mind sneaker-zooming, it's an amazing piece of glass. At 28.6 oz, it's extremely sharp and easy to handle (Nikon's 2.8 zooms weigh about 54 oz in comparison.) It's also rugged. The slide out incorporated hood is awesome - no fumbling around in your camera bag - it's instantly available when you need it (one less thing to carry, or worry about losing.) I find the smaller/narrower barrel size is also more comfortable in my hands. I can shoot this lens at 1/125 sec handheld with consistantly great results, breaking the 1.5x your focal length rule on a regular basis. Attached a theater shot below done at 1/40 sec, which is seriously pushing the envelope for a lens so long. Bought mine used at least five years ago, and it is still performing flawlessly. For years I have considered ordering one of Nikon's 2.8 telephoto zooms, but worried about how they'll measure up in comparison - especially in terms of speed of focus and sharpness. Also concerned about the added AF-S (Silent Wave Motor) feature on the zooms - I've heard they break. May just have to stick with the 180mm and it's phenomenal output.

One of the Sharpest Nikkor's Ever Made


from St. Louis, MO  -  Pro Photographer

This is one of those legendary Nikon lenses. It is a great, general purpose medium telephoto.


Romantic lens


from miami  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I went with the Sigma 50-150 2.8 which is no longer available but the 180 was sharper.

A great lens, often overlooked today.


from Brisbane, Australia

have owned this lens since 1990. I wasn't using it much, and was considering selling it, as I have a Nikon 70-200 VR1 and 135mm AF-DC. I am on a trip to China and Cambodia, and decided not to take the 70-200 that I normally use with my D2Xs. The weight of three camera bodies and 5 lenses, plus a laptop was a bit much! So, I took the 180mm F2.8 to use with my D3S and D3. I could not be happier, as the photos are brilliant. The lens has excellent bokeh. Looks like my 70-200 may be resting in the bag at home, a lot more now.


Fast and not heavy.


from Yakima, WA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Very underrated lens. Fast: 2.8 and not at all heavy. Doesn't need a tripod collar. Goes well with a few other primes to make a better package than several zooms would. 20mm f2.8 and 85mm f1.4 and this are a great combination.

Everyone should have one of these


from Undisclosed

I bought my first AF 180 f/2.8 a few years ago to use on my D50 and have been using it ever since on every other Nikon DSLR that I have bought through the years. This is simply one of those lenses that is unique in all respects. Sharp wide-open, great color, bokeh, just the right amount of contrast, etc.. It works well on every camera that I've ever tired it on and it's my favorite lens for going out to shoot with one camera and one lens. I liked it so much, I even bought the newer AF 180 f/2.8D version. The same great lens and two lenses that will stay with me always.
