It says Nikon AF-S 80-400 VR opposed to Nikon AF-S 70-200 VRII. Does this says that the new lens is equipped with first generation Nikon VR? The B&H web site writes about the 80-400 VR: "...allowing you to shoot at shutter speeds up to four times slower than would otherwise be possible". So is the the fourth VR generation? The latest? The best Nikon currently has? Or the same VR as on the old 80-400?

"Second Generation 4 stop VR"

I wouldn't worry the type of VR on the 80-400; there will other more important things to consider!
