180mm lenses on Nikon D3x

Added to DAP is my report on how 180mm lenses perform on the Nikon D3x. I previously reported on troublesome issues with the Nikon 70-200VR in Mush in the Corners.

Lenses tested include the Leica 180/2.8 APO-Elmarit-R, Nikon 180/2.8D ED, Nikon 70-200/2.8 VR, Nikon 70-300/4.5-5.6 VR, and Tamron 70-200/2.8, the latter two courtesy of LensRentals.com.

And yes, that’s a Leica 180/2.8 APO-Elmarit-R shown below, which I’ve converted to Nikon mount using the Leitax conversion kit—more on that another day. The 90/2 APO unfortunately has a mechanical issue that won’t allow it, and the 280/4 APO has an issue as well, so I’ll have to be content with the 180/2.8 APO.

That’s the petite little Voigtlander 40/2 Ultron ASPH posing underneath the Leica 180.
