just wanted to share some recent tests made with a D200 and the Nikkor AF 80-200mm 1:2.8 D ( recently bought, second hand ).

I'm quite surprised and pleased by the result, an expert eye might not be agree, so in doubt, I post those hopping for constructive comments.

The first two are actualy cropped and represent ~50% of the full image, the last one is ~90% of the full frame.

All are jpeg degraded by compression 7 ( to meet the 100k requirement ).

1: 1/750s / f2.8 / 200mm
2: 1/1000s / f2.8 / 200mm
3: 1/1600s / f2.8 / 200mm

All are at ISO 100.

I choosed f2.8 on purpose to test full aperture, slower apertures should come a little bit better.

Shooted in RAW, converted and corrected with ACR/CS2.

PS: I just realized that this should has been posted in the "Constructive Critique & Technical Advice" forum instead. Sorry about that. Feel free to move it there if possible. Thanks.
