Boycott the New 200-400 VRII
Apr 29, 2010

Not that I mind an upgrade to a key lens, but the updates do NOT merit this kind of price increase. I have seen a pre production lens and had a friend compare it to the orig. lens. Its darn close regarding IQ. Now the VRII does give an extra 1/2 stop and is more functional to a certain degree but the lens is NOT a re design, only a minor update that does NOT warrant this absurd price increase.
For God sakes, the 70-200VR2 was LESS of an increase with MORE of a re design!!!
And IMO, worth the extra 500.00 (God love that sharp at f2.8 lens!)

If we were talking a 300-500.00 increase, maybe but trust me, the older and newer IQ is VERY close.

Now does anyone want to guess what these yo yo's will charge for the updated 85 1.4??? My guess is that the price will almost double, and if it does it better see through my models clothing ; )

Peace, Dave
