Re: 70-300VR vs 70-200 f4
In reply to Bohemien, Apr 26, 2013

If you use 200-300 on the 70-300,  it degrades a lot.  At 300, you are better off cropping, as the astigmatism and low contrast are so bad that there is a net loss in quality. The 70-200 takes a 1.4TC, which should produce much better quality, and images that can still be cropped for more mag.

The 70-200 is just slightly heavier than the 70-300, and much nicer to use - if you can afford it.
