    This lens:

    http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/80200.htm

    slightly used, in excellent condition for $750.


    It's $1k new.


    thoughts? That would be at the faaar end of my current budget.

    I'm also considering going the opposite way and getting the 11-16 2.8

    when I had my D80, I wanted one instead of forking out the cash for a 70-200 2.8 VR. I've heard good things about it.
