Telephoto Nikon Prime FX Lenses

Nikon has a very large range of prime telephoto lenses, but a few of them are in serious need of being updated. From 200mm and up, Nikon has done a good job of keeping the lenses updated with the latest AF-S and VR technologies. Below that, however, things are a hodgepodge, with some lenses being updated, some never having been updated from early film era, and a couple of others in between. That said, there isn't a dud in any of these lenses: they're all optically excellent, some beyond excellent. It's really the focus system, electronic aperture, and lack of VR that tends to come into play with the <200mm lenses. 

Here’s information on all the FX Telephoto prime lenses:
