Nikon 180mm f/2.8D AF IF-ED
Who It’s For:
This is an older lens from Nikon that was announced back in the days of film, but it’s still a great lens to this day, and at just under $900, this is a solid medium range tele. It’s built like a professional lens too so don’t worry about light damage, it’ll stand up to the task like a champ.
What We Like:
Build Quality: As I said above, it’s built like a tank.
Price: It’s somewhat more expensive than other lenses from sigma and tamron in this focal length category, but it’s considerably cheaper than the $2500 70-200mm f/2.8 and has much better build quality than the off brand lenses.
Speed: The autofocus on this camera is very quick as long as it’s switched into AF mode.
