Bizarre pricing of the Nikkor 70-200/2.8 VR vs the f/4 VR?
7 months ago

I was just looking at fleabay and saw that the two 70-200mm first generation VR lenses are being sold for around the same price. I assume this is because there is a flaw in the f/2.8 VR, but would that be a penalty for having first-gen VR, or is there a problem with this specific lens model? FWIW, the f/2.8 VR II sells for about 1.6 times that amount...
