Silly 70-200 comparisons....
Oct 28, 2012

1. Clearly F2.8 aims to people that need zoom for fast action shooting and don't have time to change lenses...

2. Clearly f4 aims to people that don't need the extra speed...

3. Clearly VR doesn't concern action shooters...

4. Clearly VR concerns "static scene" shooters...

5. Clearly the smaller lens is more maneuverable....

6. Clearly the faster lens has been build at the edge of been able to handhold it...

7. Clearly the faster lens is not a "walk around" lens...

8. Clearly the faster lens can extend its potential better if used with TCs...

9. Clearly those who don't need zoom can get an 85 or 105 and an 180 and cover the distance, yet retaining speed...

So ...what is all those comparison of apples with oranges...? You either need the extra speed or you don't, you either need zoom or you don't, you either have to pay the bulk penalty or you don't... different people have different needs and this is with all DSLR makers for years... At least it was like that with Canon users, ...why are Nikon users different?
