I always hear about this lens being great once you get to the
200-300mm range of it. That's not true. If you read the reviews
carefully... this lens can still be razor sharp at 300mm. The only
thing is that you need to stop down to f/8 or so. Just like a lot
of the other teles that have been out there in the past. Even the
more expensive ones. I have seen very nice 100% crops from this
lens at all focal lengths.

At least though VR allows you to shoot at f8 a lot more of the time than without it which will make it sharper than other lens at 300
