Mine does soften as it approaches 300mm, but it still is "good". More importantly, it is small enough and light enough to take on vacation - where my shots were taken (two vacations). Would I have liked the 300mm f2.8? You bet, having used one many times. However I would have never taken it on vacation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good point actually. I did't look at it this way. There is no way I am taking 70-200 VR II on a family vacation in Mexico or Dominican. It would attract too much attention. I have enough worry brining 85 1.4G. Thank you!
