80mm-200mm f/4.5 Zoom Nikkor Auto

Introduced in 1970. This is a compact, lightweight zoom lens which is about the same length as (but a little heavier than) the 200mm Nikkor Auto lens. It is easy to hold and balances well for hand-held shots. The 2.5X zooming range covers the critical focal lengths of medium telephoto lenses most frequently used in photojournalism and general photography. This coverage is also very useful for sports and news photography. Zooming and focusing may be accomplished singly or simultaneously with the linear travel and rotation of the lens sleeve. Instant response to fast moving subjects is an outstanding feature of this lens. This lens has received rave reviews during that era for its outstanding sharpness at all its focal length.

The angle of view during zooming varies from 30° 10' to 12° 20'. Five focal lengths are indicated on the lens barrel for the convenience of the photographer.

The 80mm-200mm Zoom Nikkor, mounted on the Nikon camera fitted with motor drive and pistol grip, offers great mobility. With its extensive zooming range it is an excellent choice for the newspaper, magazine and industrial and commercial photographers.

80-200mm f4.5

This zoom lens covers the medium to long telephoto range of 80-200mm, most widely used for anything from, for example, portraiture to action close-ups anc landscape photography. Its unique telephoto-type design has considerably reduced both the size and weight of the lens, allowing all-around hand-held

shooting and use of standard 52mm filters. An added convenience is that zooming and focusing can be accomplished with the single focusing/zooming ring, allowing almost instant response to fast-moving su bjects. This zoom lens also excels in closest focusing distance —a mere 1.8m (6 ft)—which is a great advantage in model-shooting, one of its many applications in which the photographer can compose images freely in rapid succession at close range.

Dimension: 75.5mm dia. x 162mm length (2-31/32 in. x 6-3/8 in.)
Weight: 820g (29 oz)
