I'm a newcomer to the forums and a radio documentarian that's been expanding my storytelling to video over the last 5 years.
I've been seeing a few Nikkor/Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8's (specifically the AF edition) going used within the $500-$600 range and was wondering whether it might make sense to pick one of these up as the closest comparable lens in the Canon lineup price-wise is the non-IS 70-200 f/4 (??).
Acknowledging the tradeoff of losing A/F and 10mm of focal range (70 vs 80) while gaining an extra stop (f/2.8 vs f/4), do the Nikkor/Nikons become a good option in that price range?
This would be for video exclusively.
Appreciate any critical assessments that can be offered!
