[insert expletive here] By his measure, the Nikkor 200mm f/2 VR is not really needed on Nikon's ultra-sensitive DSLR bodies. Put that VR in a 200mm f/6.3 and that's all those Nikon folks really need. Own anything faster and they are snobs.

How many of you are now going to toss your f/2 and faster "snob" lenses? Apparently you don't really need them.

...such comments are to be expected from someone who "loathes bokeh", feels that deep DOF and sharpness across the frame represent the epitome of photography, and anything else is "snobbery".
