Nikon 70-300 VR vs Nikon 70-200 f/4 VR
Feb 28, 2013

Is there any review which compares these two lenses? I know Mansurov's is extremely glowing about 70-200 f/4 VR (including vs 70-200 f/2.8 VR II) but he does not compare it directly with 70-300 VR. Also I am getting slightly skeptical of Mansurov's mostly gravitating toward newer introduced lenses - folks will be more likely to buy newly introduced lenses after seeing a positive review (and click the links to B&H for that lens). I also know that photozone has a great review of 70-200 f/4 VR and a so-so of review of the 70-300mm VR - but photozone does not do direct comparisons.
