    I wish I wasn't dumb enough to continuously forget the subject line.

    Anyway, sorry to be even dumber but what is a VD lens?

    "Nikon Af 80-200, F 2.8, VD lens, mint condition" is what I am looking mat but it seems suspiciously cheap so what am I missing?

    It's probably cheap because it has got something nasty ... <img src=http://www.amphot.co.uk/stuff/s2/devil-naughty.gif>

    I think VD stands for Vibration Dampening - similar to Canon IS (Image Stabilising).

    Not unless you put a 'johnny' on as protection.

    Re: Gawd...it should be VR which stands for

    Vibration Reduction, ermx, and it should be either an 80-400/4-5.6 VR lens
    or a 70-200/2.8 VR G (without Aperture ring) lens.

    BTW, is 'johnny' a term for filter in Great Britain?
