#4. "RE: D800 with a AF Zoom-Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8D ED Lens" In response to In response to 3
Nikonians is indeed a great resource. I used that same lens on my D700 until a couple of weeks ago when I was fortunate enough to find a like new 70-200mm lens for a very fair price. As further evidence of the "FX'ness" of your 80-200mm f2.8, mine dated bak to my F5 days with 35mm film (... that stuff in rolls that you had to have processed - LOL) So you will enjoy your 80-200mm on your D700 very much. As Brian said, the matter of "more reach" on a DX body is simply that of cropping an FX image to DX proportions. Now you may feel you have lost reach, but what you have gained is Field of View. Enjoy BOTH your new D700 and "old" 80-200!
