Is the 70 200 f4 a compromise lens?
Mar 21, 2013

I guess what I'm wondering is do alot of the people who purchase this lens do so while really wanting the 70 200 vr2? I know many like the the reduced size and weight which I understand but is it really a 2.8 wannabee? I was interested in the 70 200 f4 but the reviews largely agree that its a little soft at 200mm. I can't help but think that this lens would still leave me longing for it's bigger more expensive brother.
