This lens if the 1988 to 1992 version. It's push/pull zoom and autofocuses like a champ. It takes a 77mm filter on the front.
The official name is: 80-200mm f/2.8 AF ED
I just spent $150 to get it professionally cleaned and lubricated. It looks great and works 100%. I got it back from the shop today, clean as a whistle.
Here are some photos.
f/2.8 - f/22
insanely clean optics all the way through
The lens has had a UV filter ever since I bought it. I am the second owner - the first rarely used it.
I took the UV filter off to keep on my new 70-200mm VR lens. I don't use lens caps, so I lost that somewhere along they way. Replacement lens caps are relatively inexpensive.
This lens is NOT compatible with the following NIKON cameras: D40, D40x, D60, D90, D3000, D3100, D5000. It should work flawlessly with every other DLSR and 35mm SLR since the 1980's.
I'm looking to get $500 for it. That's $500 for a fast tele zoom. I doubt you'll find many better deals. The current version sells for $1,224.95 from Nikon.
If you're interested, give me a call or drop me an email.

I accept PayPal and cash. I am willing to ship it, but of course you'll have to pay shipping expenses.
