It's a great lens but travelling with it would be a PITA as would carrying the thing all day long.

Even the 70-200 VRII is pushing it weight-wise on a D3 series body for all day carry in my view.

I also suspect it would be of limited use. I had a 300 f2.8 VRII and sold it after realising I had not mounted it on a camera for 18 months: just too much capital to tie up in something that got so little use. I am sure that this 200 would fall into the same category for me.

Personally I would just rent it when you want it.
