I've got the Nikkor 80-200 AF-S f2.8" for a while, and made some test shots with it.
It is definetely great lens, very sharp and very fast. But if you mount it on your camera, it will prevent camera from using speedlight AF-assist illuminator. So it is almost impossible to use this lens in the darkness.
Also i've tried to achieve round bokeh circles, without spherical warp. Then you should stop down aperture a little, so your bokeh circles became smaller. If only i had Nikon F200 f2 :)
