I actually see this all the time on forums. "Someone said that this lens ..." so they don't use it. Take these with a grain of salt.

I think in the case of the 70-200 VR, is that the lens is not quite as good at the edges of the frame as the newer VR II version, but for 90% of pictures you probably wouldn't notice a difference, especially on a D700 (this camera is not very particular on the lenses it uses since it is a 12 MP full frame camera).

Actually...

A D700 IS where you will most see the difference. BECAUSE it is full frame. Softness on the edge is less noticeable on the DX camera because it is a smaller sensor.
(I use that lens on both DX and FX).

But as you advised... hopefully the OP will take what you said with a grain of salt.
