Re: 200-400 VR does not equal prime lens sharpness?

I'll post some examples of both lenses wide open and stopped down. In regards to the 300 2.8 AFS-I, that lens is monster sharp! I refuse to get rid of it for anything else. I know some people are getting rid of their 300 lenses for the 200 f/2, but I couldn't imagine how much sharper it could be. My 300 AFS-I feels very special.
