    Nikon 70-200 VR2 arrived, woot!

    The beast just arrived

    I've been wanting one for a while now and my partner "got" "me" this for my christmas present (meaning I payed for it but she let me get it) hehe :P

    Can't wait to get out it for a run, i'll be sure to post results

    Yes quite beautiful. I especially like #2 with the single source light accenting the length of her body

    Hey Rj,

    Im really keen to get one of those but was worried on how much sharpness i may give up, they look good though for 400mm

    I'm sure you'll be happy with it. Whilst I don't use mine as frequently as I'd like, the quality of the results when I do remind me how nice this lens is.

    A terrific lens, but beyond my budget. I still use the older 80-200 f2.8. Great value as a 2nd hand lens. Enjoy your lens.
    cheers
