[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.

If I'm right on the post you are referring to, the better route is just ignoring the OP of that thread altogether and forgoing the resulting insults that always follow if you happen to respond in any fashion to any post of his...that thread or any other, where he might deem your response to not be in 100% agreement.
