Every shot here could have been made as easily with the 180mm f2.8, and would have been as sharp and clear. The mountain better because less flair, well, I just do not know what to say. But on a D7100 you get a 300mm f2.8 lens and 24MP, and remember the little 135mm f2? That is a 200mm on 24MP at a fraction of the size and cost with greater resolution, and the same possibilities with extenders. If ever I need an extra stop of speed , thanks for reminding me of its existence. You just do not need VR with it or the 180mm at all- not in that light anyway.
