The 80-200, 70-200 VR1 and VRII were really all we needed. I only saw people asking for a slow 70-200 online.

When you are saying "we" to whom were you specifically referring to? Because your "we" did not include me. And were else besides online did you find people to talk to about wanting a f/4 70-200 or not?

I have the 80-200AFS and 70-200AFS VRII and I certainly wanted a slow, high IQ, excellent VR, great build 70-200/4. In fact I bought one I wanted it so much . . . .

Well, the "we" applies to folks I know.

The 80-200 is a great lens. The 70-200 VRII is better in almost every respect than the F4, which I've seen 1st hand.

So, why did YOU want one? Just curious.

Robert
