Hello,
I need help from someone who has used the following lenses. They will be used on a D1x and an F100. I really want to get the AFS 80-200 Nikon, but the price is high, so my questions are as follows;

1. Is the AFS lens clearer at the F stops and throughout the zoom range over the standard Nikon 80-200 f/2.8?

2. Has anyone used the Sigma Zoom Telephoto 70-200mm f/2.8 EX APO IF HSM Autofocus Lens for Nikon AF-D and how does that compare to the Nikons through the F stop ranges and zoom ranges for clarity?

3. Has anyone used the Tokina Zoom Telephoto AF 80-200mm f/2.8 AT-X 828AF Pro Autofocus Lens for Nikon AF-D and how does that compare to the Nikons through the F stop ranges and zoom ranges for clarity?

I am looking for the most usable lens throughout the f/stops with greatest clarity through the zoom. It doesn't necessarily have to be the fastest AF for my needs. Thanks

Tom
