Thank you for the input.

F/4.0 does not concern me, since 99.9% of my outdoor shooting is done in sunshine. VR is important to me many times I have to handhold the lens, at 70, I am not as steady as I used to be. I also want the ED glass as color and sharpness are very important.

If you *really* don't need 2.8 then the f4 is a better option, that weight difference really helps over a days carrying it around, and the VR on the f4 is simply sensational (before I'd been fairly indifferent to VR). The f4 doesn't come with a collar tripod mount, so some people add the extra cost to their projections, for others they use the camera tripod mount as the lens is pretty light and they don't think it makes a difference.
