My "old" 180/2.8 is an incredibly good lens. I would frequently take less of 1/4th of a frame and enlarge to 8x10 or 11x14 and you could still read the logo on the football and see the stitches! On Tri-x 400! I cannot imagine anyone assigning a "bad" reputation to this lens. I was not ever impressed with the "old" 250/4, but I believe that I was just comparing it to my beloved 180. Sure the 180 is heavy, but all of the girls like her, she has a good sense of humor, and she can really cook. You ought to take her out sometime. You might really like her!
