    Erm, I would certainly trust Clive. Well, I did on the Leica. Just because he sucks the blood of virgins doesn't make him a bad person./img/wwwthreads/wink.gif

    I'd send Fangs an email Nicxx - far safer bet than ebay - I was also tempted but resisted

    I'll second that - buy from the man you know, rather than the one you don't! (Esp. given my last eBay lens transaction.) Common sense really /img/wwwthreads/wink.gif

    Nice lens BTW

    Re: Would you buy a used telephoto from a well dodgy Vampire?

    Sorry to sound thick but is there a difference between Clive's and the ebay one? What's the difference between ED and IFED? Or is Clive's also IFED? ED is extra dispersion, yes? IF is nothing to do with Image Stabilising, which is IS or VR no?

    I'm pretty sure they're the same model, but thought I'd better check with you guys..

    I've mailed him but I need to know pretty soon in case I have to go for the other one.

    Re: Would you buy a used telephoto from a well dodgy Vampire?

    The "IF" bit stands for "Internal Focus" Erm which means that the front element of the lens doesn't rotate when it's focusing (handy if you're using a grad filter or whatever). I think Fangs lens is the internal focus model (in fact I'm pretty sure it is!) but just check with him...............although he's not usually up out of his coffin at this time of day.

    If you can't get hold of Fangs........

    ........ask TimF Erm. He's an old Nikon man and should be able to tell you which lens it is from the picture attached to this post. He's online here at the moment.
    Oi Tim..............Erm wants a word!

    Would you buy an IF lens? IF it focussed. IF it works. Maybe it stands for InFerior. Canon are no better - they've obviously never heard of the Simpsons else they wouldn't call their new technology lenses 'DO'

    Well lets hope they never bring out a D1L with "DO" technology or they'll have a "D1ldo" /img/wwwthreads/smile.gif

    Re: Would you buy a used telephoto from a well dodgy Vampire?

    Erm, but David isn't the fact it belongs to Clive an assurance that it works? I do trust him...! What are my alternatives?

    No really, I need any help I can get because I dont know all that much, which is why I come here for advice and very excellent it is. IF (excuse the pun) it's a big problem then I need to know why...do you mean that it has no manual focus ability at all? Or just that if the AF doesnt work I'm buggered?

    Any help gratefully received!

    Old Stoatey's just being funny Erm, there's nothing intrinsically wrong with 80-200 f2.8 IFED Nikkors (or any Nikon lens for that matter), indeed quite the opposite as the high end Nikkors like the f2.8 IFED 80-200 are built to a very high standard both optically and mechanically. Rest assured that if you buy Clives that you will be getting a mint example from someone you can trust.............trust him, he's a doctor! (and part time Vampire and Druid!) /img/wwwthreads/smile.gif

    BigWill

    P.S. It also has excellent manual focus capability of the "two touch" (seperate rings for focusing and zooming) variety.
