I had the VR1 and loved it too for sports, particularly water polo and wrestling. The drawback is its limited usage, size, and weight. After hand holding this monster, a monopod is definitely a relief for a guy who has not trained in the weight room. But, even though I convinced myself that the 70-200mm at 200mm is almost as good, I would love to buy mine back from the buyer at around $3500. I will not pay a premium for the VR2 with the nono coating.
